Girl, eight, bakes hundreds of scones to cheer up vulnerable neighbours

A primary school girl, who discovered a passion for baking during the coronavirus lockdown, has made hundreds of scones to cheer up the elderly and vulnerable. Riah Totten, eight, from Belfast, substituted her love of football with cooking after the Covid-19 restrictions meant she could no longer play sport. With the help of her mother Amanda Dobbin, Riah has made more than 300 scones for pensioners living in the Ravenhill, Clonduff, Belvoir and Cregagh areas of Northern Ireland. _____________________________________________________________ More on coronavirus: ______________________________________________________________ “But the cooking started when my mum dropped some baking stuff for the kids.
