My home-made bake-off

A GIRL staged her own Great British Bake Off-style competition for charity.

Ella Butler-Creagh, 11, invited friends and family to bake cakes for the contest at the Unicorn pub in Kingwood on Saturday, which she then judged with owner Lolly Green.

Nine cakes were entered, varying from millionaire’s shortbread to a medieval-themed rainbow cake.

Ella, who lives with her parents Richard, 50, a property developer, and Charlotte, 41, a counsellor, and brother Blake, 10, in Colmore Lane, Kingwood, was raising money for Sue Ryder after pledging to make £100 for the charity during every school holiday this year.

She said: “It was my New Year’s resolution to do more fund-raising. In the past I’ve always wanted to do things for charity but never got round to them. My dad ran the Dublin Marathon last year and it inspired me to do something. This is the first event and I’m really happy. My friends have come and made cakes and I’m really happy with how it turned out. I haven’t decided what to do next but I want to keep going.”
