Bath girls hold cake sale in memory of grandads
Two girls from Combe Down have spent the last day of their summer holiday baking cakes and selling them for charity.
Bryony Lodge, 12, and Molly Marsh, 11, wanted to do something to raise money for Dorothy House after the hospice cared for both their grandfathers before they died.
This week, they held a cake sale at Bryony's home in Tyning Road to raise as much money as they could.
Bryony's grandad Paul Watts died in 2004 after a battle with cancer.

She said: "Both my grandad and Molly's grandad were looked after by Dorothy House and we wanted to do something to raise money for them.
"Dorothy House really looked after our grandads well and does a good job."
Molly's grandad Alan Windeatte lost his fight against cancer in 2009.
She said: "We like baking, which is why we decided to do a cake sale. We are hoping that lots of people buy our cakes so we can give lots of money to the hospice."
The girls, both pupils at Ralph Allen School, also held a cake sale a few weeks ago at Molly's house.
Together, the sales have so far raised just over £200 for the charity.
Bryony's mum Nicky said: "I am proud of the girls for coming up with the idea on their own and spending hours making the cakes.
"Dorothy House does such a wonderful job.
"It supports the whole family through a really difficult time."
