Mayrung Public School has donated the proceeds of a school cake stall to the new Deniliquin Oncology Outreach Unit.
The stall was held at the end of the 2012 school year, and the Year 1 and 2 students baked biscuits, cakes and slices and sold them to students and staff.
A total of $70.70 was raised, which was presented to Deniliquin Hospital health service manager Andrew Dagg this month.
Mayrung teacher Jenny Adamson said the idea for the fundraiser came about during Book Week.
‘‘I gave the kids an activities booklet, and one project was to get together and raise money for a cause.
‘‘From this they came up with the idea on their own.
‘‘It was terrific, I was so proud of them.’’
Students are now in the process of organising another fundraiser, with funds again being donated to the new unit.
‘‘They are fantastic kids, that are very community minded.’’
So far, funds for the unit have been raised for the oncology unit by various groups including the Naponda Hospital Auxiliary, Mayrung Hospital Auxiliary, Deniliquin Community Group and Yackandandah Primary School.
The oncology unit is expected to start taking patients early this year.
