Youngsters’ cakes cook up training funds for Sheringham lifeboat
Fund-raising was a piece of cake for a bunch of youngsters on Sheringham seafront during the summer.
A group of enterprising young friends sold cakes near a family beach hut on the east promenade.
Their efforts have raised �420 for the town's lifeboat station training funds.
Mum Vanessa Connolly said: 'Last summer the girls ran a puppet theatre on the seafront and collected �62.
'This this they did the cakes - made at home under parental supervision - as well as doing book and car boot sales with their old toys and clothes.
'They also took it in turns to take a tray of cake on to the beach.'
The team involved were Chelsea and Serena Connolly, Emily Wright, Ophena Parker-Benn, Tilda Fassih, Ellie Withers - all from Sheringham - and visiting London friend Otillie Cooper.

The goodies included cup cakes, flapjacks, brownies, crispy cakes and Victoria sponge.
The youngsters visited the station to hand over their cash - and provide a few sample cakes for the crew.
Operations manager Brian Farrow thanked the girls, adding: 'It is fantastic to know we are getting the support of the local community.
'These people have huts on the seafront and must see a lot of us. The money will go towards extra training for the crew to bring them up to 'day skipper' standard.'
