The Kids are Alright

Cartia & Leela with their sweet treats

Proving that Australian Cancer Research Foundation supporters do span across all generations are our latest two young fundraisers Leela Bishop and Cartia Mallan, Year 6 students at Somerville House in South Brisbane.

Leela and Cartia wanted to help in the fight against the disease and chose The Australian Cancer Research Foundation after doing some fact finding about cancer on the internet.

Both girls have family members who have been affected by cancer and showing a lot of initiative they decided that they wanted to make a contribution.

With great enterprise, the two young students made some homemade treats and sold them from a trolley around their neighbourhood over a weekend recently. Lots of people bought the cakes, biscuits and slices and the duo raised $177.

No one was happier about the efforts of the two girls than their own parents.

“We were delighted that Leela and Cartia took the initiative to do this and are very proud of their efforts,” said Kylie & Peter Mallan and Greg & Kanchana Bishop.
