Molly and Gracie Lou Cameron have been busy baking for Comic Relief, with a little extra help from Tesco in Barnstaple.

Two Barnstaple youngsters have been busy baking to raise money for Comic Relief.

Molly Cameron, six, and Gracie Lou Cameron, three, have been holding bake sales at their home in Barnstaple.

And they have been so successful that Tesco Extra in Barnstaple gave them a huge box of baking ingredients to help.

So far Molly and Gracie have raised more than £500 thanks to generous donations from friends and family.

They also held an extra bake sale this weekend at their house to boost their total.

Mum Louise Cameron said: “After we watched a video on the Comic Relief website, the girls were eager to find a way to help raise money for children in Africa.

“They would like to say a massive thankyou to Tesco for donating the box of baking ingredients.”

Ross Yates, service manager at Tesco Extra, added: “A massive congratulations to Molly and Gracie for raising a huge amount of money; we are pleased we can assist the girls in any way we can.”
