Teachers battle it out in Clayhall primary school bake-off
A bake-off which started as a gentle competition between teachers at a Clayhall school eventually raised more than �400 for a Woodford Green hospice.
Pupils at Glade Primary School in Atherton Road got to vote on which of their teachers had produced the best Christmas cake or gingerbread house on Tuesday, paying �1 for the privilege.
Cover teacher Louise Murphy won the first category with a giant Christmas tree cupcake while year two teacher Jo Parker was judged to have created the best gingerbread house.
The winning cakes were awarded to children who were chosen by a raffle.
Proceeds went to Haven House Children’s Hospice in High Road.
