Clodagh & Maeve's Story

Clodagh & Maeve's story

When the girls found out kids got cancer, they wanted to do something to help find a cure.

Clodagh and Maeve were at Nippers during our Balmoral Swim for Cancer event and heard about childhood cancer. When they got home, they said to their dad Tomasz that they wanted to hold a cake stall to raise money for our research to help cure kids with cancer.

Clodagh made an invitation and asked her Dad to photocopy it so they could tell people about their cake stall. They gave invitations to all their neighbours and school friends.

Baking & fundraising

Clodagh & Maeve's parents and friends pitched in to do all the baking and the stall raised $140 for our research!

The lunch container of the money they had collected was the most amount of money they had ever seen before!

Thank you

The girls came to the Institute in April to collect their thank you certificates, which they're going to take to school for show & tell.

Clodagh & Maeve Thank you

The girls came home ecstatic, very proud of their achievement and new certificates.
