A 12-YEAR-OLD pupil has been getting baking for a good cause.

Maria Wilson was keen to do her bit for MacMillan Cancer Research and spent her free time selling homemade cupcakes to her classmates at Bursledon Junior School.

Maria’s relatives have suffered with cancer in the past and she wanted to do her bit to help.

Ingredients and cake toppings were donated by Sainsbury’s and Maria spent the night before decorating the 200 cakes.
