Cook for Books

‘Cook for Books’ is a fantastic set of events run by year groups at Wantage CE Primary School to raise money for their own classrooms through holding a cake sale. As the date of your year group cake sale arrives, students will be sent home with instructions, a plate and a plastic bag. You can support these events by donating cakes/biscuits, volunteering to help price up donations, manning the stall and buying some lovely treats! Thank you, The Friends.
