The school was the first to adopt the fundraising concept last year, raising $1150 to help people aged 18 to 40 affected by cancer. Cupcakes for Cancer founder Sara Winter said the fundraiser was about more than just raising money.

‘It is also about putting the fun back into fundraising and encouraging a greater spirit of giving in younger generations,’ she said.

More than 60 Year-7 Tapping students decorated 700 cupcakes which they then sold for a gold coin donation.

‘We are always on the look-out for ways for the school to give back to the community and Cupcakes for Cancer is a unique and fun way to get the kids involved,’ Year 7 teacher Mary Dawson said.
