Plymouth fundraisers show entrepreneurial spirit
TWO first-time fundraiser’s have shown their entrepreneurial spirit at a Christmas fayre.
10-year-old Rachel Peters and Lily Rowbotham ran a cake stall at Lipson Vale Primary School raising £63.00 for St Luke's Hospice.
In a bid to get some extra sales in the last few minutes of the fayre, they reduced their prices and ran up and down the school corridors to promote their cakes, cookies and gingerbread men.
Both girls have known people who have died of cancer and wanted to raise money for St Luke’s to help them care for people.

Rachel said: “I had so much fun raising money for St Luke’s with my best friend. I look forward to doing it again next year and raising even more.”
The girls raided Rachel’s parents penny pot to buy the ingredients for the stall.
Nina Wearne, community fundraiser at St Luke’s said: “I am so thrilled that these young girls who are only 10 years old have realised the importance of raising funds for St Luke’s and more importantly realising how much fun you can have whilst fundraising.
“Without the help of the community we would be unable to provide the specialist end of life care that we do over 3,200 patients each year.
“I’d like to thank Rachel. Lily and their parents for their support.”
