Students sell cakes in aid of boy’s cancer treatment

Students sell cakes in aid of boy’s cancer treatment

BUSINESS students from The Henley College held a cake sale in the town centre to raise money for the treatment of a boy fighting cancer.

Bethany Chalk, Chloe Cook and their tutor Adam Stangroom set themselves up in Falaise Square, Henley, and raised £255 in five hours.

The sale was in aid of Oliver Warner, five, from Bramley, Hampshire, who has neuroblastoma, a rare type of cancer that affects the nerve cells.

His family needs to raise £500,000 to take him to Spain for immunity treatment and then to America for further treatment.

Mr Stangroom also lives in Bramley and his wife Karen teaches at Oliver’s school where the couple’s son Daniel, nine, is also a pupil.

The students asked Waitrose, Patisserie Valerie and Franco Belge to donate the cakes.

Chloe said: “We started off with a few tables of cakes and they went so quickly.”

Mr Stangroom said: “The whole point of this exercise was that the students needed to show their organisational skills. They worked really hard.”
