28 November 2014
bto's Glasgow and Edinburgh offices raised a grand total of £1,562.52 at our recent charity bake sale for the Beatson Cancer Charity.
The charity bake sale has proved very successful over a number of years since our first bake sale for the Eve Appeal back in 2011. Organiser Alison Hepburn puts its popularity down to the fact that everyone gets involved and enjoys the ‘rewards’...which explains the morning queues waiting for the bake sales to open!
Our first fund raising event for the Beatson Cancer Charity took place on St. Valentine's Day raising a terrific £1,003.82.
The bakers’ and buyers’ enthusiasm spurred us on to organise another charity day on 28 November, including raffles for prizes such as a spa day at Mar Hall which was kindly donated by one of bto’s partners.
All the bto bakers did themselves proud again and this time, we beat our St. Valentine’s day total, raising a marvellous £1562.52 for The Beatson Cancer Charity. A big thank you to everyone who took part, especially the cake bakers, the raffle ticket sellers, our raffle prize sponsors and our CSR Committee.
