A compassionate Meadowpark School pupil organised a cake sale earlier this month which raised £200 for Swindon homeless charity Threshold Housing Link.

Isabella Phipps approached her headteacher Rajvinder Kular to talk about her idea.

Mrs Kular said:"When Isabella approached me, she was quite concerned about how one could become homeless through no fault of one’s own.

"She obviously wanted to help and I was impressed with her initiative.

"It was an easy decision for the school to support the endeavour to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause."

Prior to the event on February 9, Isabella wrote a letter to all Meadowpark parents and staff about her initiative and asked them to contribute cakes to the sale.

Her mum Emma Phipps said: "The reason that she knows about the Threshold Charity is because her dad always does a sponsored sleep-out for them every year.

"Isabella has always been a sensitive, caring soul and she really struggles when she sees people without a home.

"She wanted to do something to help and that’s how the idea of the cake sale was born."

Meadowpark School supports many local charities and fundraising initiatives. School open days are being held on March 9 and March 10.
