Elsie, an enterprising 13 year old from Christleton High, has put her love and talent for baking to great use during August, raising £225 for our charity.
With time on her hands as a result of the lockdown, Elsie decided to put her baking skills towards doing something for good. Everyone likes a Brownie so with this as her choice of bake, Elsie set about creating and printing up a leaflet to distribute locally with details of her Brownies and a bit about Platform for Life. Available in 3 different flavours- original chocolate, salted caramel and chocolate orange – and batches of 6,9 or 12 Brownies, the orders flooded in from family, friends and local residents. After 2 weeks of furious baking and many deliveries, Elsie realised she had raised a whopping £225.
About her achievement and what it means, a clearly delighted Elsie commented:
The money Elsie’s raised will be used by Platform for Life to fund free counselling for low income families living in Blacon, Lache and Kingsway. Platform for Life CEO Ceri George commented:
And what about the crowd-pleasing Brownie recipe Elsie used to raise so much money? It came from BBC Good Food but like a true baker she put her own twists on it.
