A CAKE sale organised by a school in Brentwood raised £600 for charity.

The event organised at Brentwood Preparatory School by eight-year-old pupil Deborah Awe and her family was held to fundraise for The Dream Factory.

The charity arranges trips and celebrity meetings for children with life-threatening illnesses.

During the sale, a special appearance was made by cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants who entertained the schoolchildren.
