Harrogate boy dedicates half term to fundraising for homeless project

A 7-year-old boy from Harrogate has spent his half term baking in order to fundraise for the Harrogate Homeless Project.

A 7-year-old boy from Harrogate has spent his half term baking in order to raise money for The Harrogate Homeless Project. Daniel Weber came home from school before half term and decided he wanted to raise the money after learning about those less fortunate than himself. And, with the help of his mum, Daniel spent the entire week in the kitchen baking cupcakes to sell to family and friends to raise money for the Harrogate Homeless Project.

Jayne Tremble, Daniel's proud mum, said:

"Daniel enjoys baking and as I'm a part-time baker myself, he decided he would like to bake and decorate cupcakes and sell for 50p each to friends and family. "I expected he may get requests to make around 20 cupcakes but within no time he had had orders to make a total of 98! "He baked and decorated each one, we delivered them and people were so very kind in their donations."
Fantastic work Daniel! [caption id="attachment_3189" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Daniel's cupcakes went down a treat with the local community.[/caption] Find out more about the Harrogate Homeless Project here. Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
