CHILDREN across Malvern are getting busy raising money for good causes.

Emily and Finley Wild have raised more than £150 for the Alzheimer's Society by baking cakes.

Their mum Chloe said: "During lock down, Emily and Finley have made cakes to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society. We know many people whose lives have been affected by dementia and wanted to do some fundraising.

"We have baked four different kinds of cakes and put them all in boxes. We have then delivered them to people that have donated. We thought this would be a great way of holding a cupcake fundraising day during lock down restrictions.

"So far the children have raised over £100 and will continue to bake whilst donations are coming in. Some people have donated even without wanting cupcakes and we are so grateful to everyone's donations and kind words."

Elsewhere, another Malvern mum, Jo Ellis, praised the efforts of her daughter Poppy, who has decided to cycle for the NHS.

Six year-old Poppy has ridden marathon distances to help raise money for the health service, and Mrs Ellis said: "Our daughter has taken to her bike a lot over this lockdown and last week decided she could raise money doing it for our NHS. We targeted her a Marathon a week (26 miles) and she did 28 miles in three days of her first week then 30.1 miles this week."
