On hearing of the Nepal Earthquake only a couple of weeks ago and the devastating affect this has had our thoughts turned to how Danbro could help and do whatever we could to support the work Operation Orphan are doing in Nepal. (Operation Orphan is a charity designed to create a brighter future for orphans and vulnerable children in our world. For many of these children, education, employment and a decent standard of living are simply out of reach – please check out their website for further details www.operation-orphan.org).
With heads together and ideas flowing we decided to start our week of fundraising with the opportunity for everybody to dress down (usually this only happens on a Friday). Fiona and Jenny put together a sweepstake using characters from animation films and a “spot the ball” competition. And, of course, a traditional Danbro Bake Sale!
Throughout the week all our wonderful bakers have been gearing up for the Bake Sale on Friday – you would not believe how competitive they are! Mind you the cakes are fantastic. Our thanks to Brothers of Charity as well for donating all the money from the sale of their cakes today in the coffee shop.
It’s Friday and Bake day has finally arrived. Aly has loaded up the trolley ready to take them around the building…although a few of us did sneak in early! Can definitely recommend them all. I have never seen so many fabulous gorgeous cakes (I think I tried most of them as well!)!
Operation Orphan have done an amazing job supporting those in need where they can in Nepal and we hope that we’ve helped in some way. We’ve managed to raise over £500 – so thank you everybody at Danbro for joining in!
