Over the weekend, the Central School Choir took centre stage in the centre of the Swift Current Mall for their bake sale to raise money for Telemiracle.

The sale featured baked goods from parents with a little help from the students, and a performance from the Central School Choir to entertain the mall-goers.

Celia Hammerton, the music director for Central School, said that the bake sale went great as they were able to raise over $1,000.

"It was a great and appreciative crowd listening to the choir and also buying lot's of our baking," she said. "We had lots of people come by and donate and had lots of the fantastic baking. It was a great success."

Hammerton said they chose to have a bake sale because it's a way to get the students, parents, and the community involved.

"It lets everybody know in the community what we are doing and why we are doing it. It's also a great opportunity for the choir students to sing in the community."

Hammerton said the bake sale also gave the students a chance to see what the money their raising can do for people.

"I think it's great to be able to see the money that we donate go back into our province," she said. "In fact, we met a lady that a had scooter that had been donated to her by Telemiracle, and it's great for the students to see how some of the money can be spent to be helping people in our province but also in our community."

Hammerton added that with the $1,000 from the bake sale it brings their total to over $5,000 raised for Telemiracle so far.
