Students from St Mary's school in Long Ditton are staging the second in a series of bake sales this Friday (March 16).

The sale marks the midpoint in a fundraising campaign organized by the students and their teachers to help raise money for new playground equipment at the school.

Last month, Year 6 students held the first bake sale for Valentine's Day, and raised an impressive £355.40 for the cause.

Friday's event will be based around the St Patrick's Day theme and the organisers are hoping to break their previous total.

The final event in the trio of bake sales will take place later this month, on March 30, ahead of Mother's Day on March 31.

All three bake sales are being supported by the local property agent, Humphrey and Bran.

Like last month's sale, the two planned for this month including Friday's event will take place outside the Humphrey and Bran offices in Surbiton.
