Harriet, 10, hopes her cake will help to save Catalyst
A CREATIVE schoolgirl has designed her own Humpty Dumpty cake and hopes her culinary skills will help to save Catalyst Science Discovery Centre.
Harriet Kenwright, aged 10, enjoyed a visit to the museum so much, she pledged to raise cash when she heard the tourist attraction was facing a cash crisis.
Her mum, Sarah, from Hough Green, runs Wright Bite Cafe in Albert Road, with her husband, John.
Sarah, aged 37, said: “Harriet read in The World that Catalyst was struggling for funding. She loved her visit there and is keen to get involved.
’”She has helped us to make cakes since she was a toddler and often designs our shop window.”
Orders for Harriet’s Easter cake are being taken now and will be on sale in the shop and at Catalyst.
Catalyst director Stephen Youd-Thomas said:”We’re delighted. This is a lovely gesture.
“We get around 10,000 young people visiting us every year. This is the first time anyone has offered to fundraise for us.”
