Isabella hands over large cheque to cancer charity
A nine-year-old who held a cake sale which managed to raise an astounding £2162.50 made a last-minute trip to London to present the cheque to the charity.
Isabella Dallorzo, from the Moreton Hall estate in Bury St Edmunds, decided to hold a bake sale after she heard her neighbour, Dave Lee, had pancreatic cancer.
Mark and Nina Dallorzo, Isabella’s parents, decided to take a family trip to London and on their travels they visited the Pancreatic Cancer UK charity offices in Westminster to hand over the cheque.
Mark said: “We met some lovely people and had photos taken.
“There were 30 or 40 staff in the offices near the Houses of Parliament who all had said it was amazing and had put the photos of the bake sale on their Instagram which had got around 180 comments.”
Mark and Nina had planned to take Isabella and her sister to London and then emailed the charity to say they would be in the area.
“Walking around the office many of the staff said ‘you’re the girl with the bake sale’ to Isabella,” Mark said.
The charity supports people affected by pancreatic cancer and invests in research about the disease.
