Bake like Isla!

Isla, who lives in Ipswich, sold her cakes to friends, family and neighbours in order to raise money for the hospice which had cared for her nanny and grandad before they passed away. She raised a brilliant £300 for the hospice through Home for Tea!

Isla, who like her mum Melanie, has a passion for baking, also held a bake sale for the hospice in 2019 after learning the care the hospice delivers is provided using funds mainly donated by the community.

Isla said: “It feels very rewarding to raise money for the hospice, as I know it is going towards a good cause which cares for people so wonderfully. Thank you to everyone who bought one of my cakes!”
