He smashed his fundraising target by reaching £1,200, with money still coming in.

The cash will be shared between the live junior ISA accounts belonging to children in care on the Island.

Challenges faced in attracting extra money
Callum said:

“Having been the council’s lead contact to the Share Foundation for almost two years, I knew about the challenges it faced in attracting extra money.

“I thought raising any additional funds or awareness could only be a good thing.

“Thanks to everyone who has supported, donated, shared on social media, baked or ate some cake in aid of looked after children on the Island.”
