OCEAN Road Primary School students baked up a storm for The Kid’s Cancer Project – Cupcake 4 a Cure.

Ocean Road students, the Surf Snack Canteen staff and school community made cupcakes to help raise awareness for childhood cancer and to raise funds for cancer research.

Surf Snack canteen manager Jodie Richards and volunteer pastry chef Kristy Pepper were overwhelmed by the support they received from the school community.

“At times we had more than 10 helpers in the kitchen and had to extend our prep area to the undercover area,” Ms Richards said.

School spokeswoman Nadia Holmes said it was important to us to raise awareness and money for research.

“Cancer is the leading cause of death of Australian children, by disease and Mandurah unfortunately has too many innocent kids battling childhood cancer,” she said.

Students sold their cupcakes and raised $1013.
