October is breast cancer awareness month and Miss Davies decided to contribute by raising money with pink blondies.

She Davies said: “Breast cancer is something that has affected my family way more times than it should have done, I think everyone knows someone who has been affected by it.

"We just thought October is breast cancer awareness month so why not make some pink brownies and try and raise money for it.”
