AROUND 100 cakes and buns have been made and sold at Haslingden High School to raise money for Facial Palsy Awareness Week.

The charity’s initiative was the brainchild of headteacher Mark Jackson’s personal assistant Kay Turner who has had Bell’s Palsy twice, first in 2003, which affected her left side, and then in 2012 it affected her right side.

Mrs Turner has now written her own story on the Facial Palsy UK website.

She began fundraising for the charity at school three-years-ago and now the charity’s deputy chief executive officer Karen Johnson has made it a national event.

Mrs Turner made nine Victoria sponges, six chocolate cakes, 80 buns and a lemon drizzle cake.
