Isabel Melling and Mary Holcombe are 10 years old and wanted to do some baking to raise funds for Birmingham Settlement.  Mary, knowing a little of what Settlement is about, shared this with friend Isabel, agreeing Settlement was a worthy cause, they set about planning their bake sale.

Having made chocolate chip cookies and strawberry and marshmallow kebabs drizzled with chocolate and decorated boxes to place their treats in, marking clearly funds raised would be donated to Birmingham Settlement, they set off in search of customers.

After a day of sales to neighbours and friends Mary and Isabel raised an astonishing £63.60.

From everyone here at Birmingham Settlement we would like to say a massive thank you to Isabel and Mary for all of your hard work.
