KING David Primary School pupil Deena Baker is cooking up a special treat for her batmitzvah in December.
Deena is raising funds for the WIZO Bar/Bat Mitzvah campaign in memory of her grandmother Sue Cooper, a member of Liverpool WIZO, who died in 2016.
“My grandma loved to cook and was often found in the kitchen creating amazing meals and cakes,” Deena, of Liverpool, said.
As a tribute, the youngster is planning to produce a cookbook in Sue’s memory and is asking for recipes to be sent to her at Deenascookbook@gmx.com for inclusion.
She is also appealing for donations to help her reach £500 so her ‘twin’ can celebrate a batmitzvah.
Last year, WIZO opened a cookery school in Israel in Sue’s memory and Deena is looking forward to sending the cookbook to the school.
WIZO’s campaign supports boys and girls from families living in poverty and social isolation.
