School Association Cake Stall

CAKES ARE BACK! End of term Cake Stall

We are excited to announce the return of Albuera St Primary School Associations's famous cake stalls!  Covid-19 restrictions have eased, which means we can now provide these valuable (and very tasty) fundraising events again. The cake stall will return immediately after School on the last day of term: Friday, 8 July 2022. Donations of baked goods can be brought to the office on the Friday morning or directly to the stall. Please note all items must be labelled with a full ingredients list, and please don't include any nuts, fresh cream or anything that needs refrigeration. The label template is attached.

 Proceeds from the cake stall will go towards the Association's contribution to the School's Reading Doctor learning program.

 We will issue more reminders before the day but you might want to get your thinking caps on in the meantime as to what you might like to bake.  Thank you for your support!
