Southport teenager Isobel follows in grandmother’s fundraising footsteps

A Southport teenager is preparing to follow in her grandmother’s fundraising footsteps.

Thirteen-year-old Isobel Cutts, a pupil at Greenbank High School, will hold a cake sale to raise money for North West Cancer Research, on Sunday (June 25).

The youngster will team up with Olive Cutts, who heads up the Southport-based fundraising group of the cancer research charity.

Girl Guide Isobel will hold the cake sale as part of her ambition to receive the Baden-Powell Challenge Award, which is the highest accolade a Guide can achieve.

This is not the first time she has joined forces with her grandmother – at Easter she helped to raise £100 for NWCR by selling knitted Easter chicks filled with chocolate.

Isobel said: “Me and my Grandma have been promoting the event over the past few weeks by giving out posters in the local area so we hope lots of people will come. My Grandma and the other members of her fundraising group have helped me out by offering to bake cakes for me to sell.”

The charity offers funding to the University of Liverpool and over the next five years has pledged £13million for research.

Sara Cooper, of NWCR, said: “Isobel is a great example of a young person giving up her time to support our charity and we hope others will be encouraged to follow suit.”

The cake sale will take place on the 25th June from 10:30am to 1pm on Isobel’s drive at 15 Lynton Road, Hillside.
