Quick-thinking Lucy decided to get the builders involved to help raise money so she could earn her Brownies charity badge.
Lucy, age 8, lives in a new house at Linden Homes’ Kings Gate development in Kingsteignton. She said: “I wanted to do something for Comic Relief and thought it would be a good idea to make cakes, as everyone loves cakes! When I was coming home from school, I saw some of the builders near our house and thought ‘I bet they would buy loads of cakes!’”
Mark Gilmour, assistant site manager for Linden Homes, said: “From rocky road to fairy cakes, Victoria sponge to chocolate cup cakes, Lucy made sure the whole team was well fed – what a fantastic entrepreneur she is!”
A new member of the 2nd Kingsteignton Brownie Group, Lucy added: “I can’t believe I made £138.55! This is my first badge for Brownies, it’s been so much fun and I know the money will go to a very special charity.”
Lucy’s mum, Sara said: “What an amazing memory-making experience Lucy has had! She sold lots to the site team and even had her Brownie leader attend the bake sale. It’s been great to chat to some of our other neighbours we hadn’t had a chance to meet too, Lucy’s definitely brought everyone together and raised lots for charity; we couldn’t be more proud of her!”
