Generous Tulip Lee raised £200 for a school in India by holding a cake sale at Holmfirth Farmers’ Market, on Sunday August 17.

Tulip, eight, from Shepley, sold her homemade goods to raise money for the NET Nursery and Primary School, in the southern Indian province of Tamil Nadu.

The school will educate children from the ‘untouchable’ caste — the lowest caste in Indian society where few go to school.

Tulip’s mum Imogen said: “Tulip likes the idea of helping children who come from very poor families to go to school, helping them break the cycle of poverty.”
