Five enterprising youngsters put their summer holidays to good use and raised almost £400 for the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS).

The girls held a cake sale in Haining Place, Grangemouth, to collect the cash for the deserving charity which provides respite care for terminally ill youngsters and their families. 
The venture was all their own work and included putting out advertising flyers to encourage people to attend.

Their efforts received the support of family, friends and neighbours to collect their grand total.

This week the girls, from left, Bethany Holmes (8), Olivia Keay (9), Beth Rafferty (9), Ellis Keay (9) and Grace Nicolson (8), presented a cheque for £399.64 to CHAS community fundraiser Laura Campbell.
