VOLUNTEERS at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Colwyn Bay put their baking skills to the test, raising lots of ‘dough’ for the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) humanitarian appeal for the Ukraine.
The all-day bake sale on Friday March 25 raised £720 and brought dozens of generous community members to the parish center on Brackley Avenue, adorned with Ukrainian flags and sunflowers created by school children .
The school also hosted Darren Millar, Clwyd West MS, at the bake sale, while donations were made to Cafod, the Catholic aid agency that is part of the DEC appeal.

“We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of so many bakers and cake lovers,” said St Joseph’s manager James Wilkinson.
“We were especially delighted to welcome not only our wonderful parents of students, but also members of the local church community and neighborhood residents.
“We would also like to thank Morrisons and Cotteswold Dairy for their contributions.”
