Odds Blog: Bake-a-Thon and Bake Sale – update

Posted by indigodream on 1 August, 2015

My dear friends and helpers



What a magnificent group of people you are – we had such a lovely day at the bake sale, wonderful to see so many people and dogs enjoying their cream teas on the terrace – and the dog treats went down a storm.

So now for the final accounting:

Although we didn’t have a great number of people at the bake sale, we obviously had great quality, as we raised £373 – add that to the sponsorship and my bakeathon and bake sale has raised……drumroll……

£963 – wow!

Twice my wildest dream estimate! ….and I’ve heard whispers that the total may get topped up a round £1,000!

I’ll split the proceeds of the sale equally between my two charities which, added to the sponsorship,  means that:

£707 will go to the Retired Greyhound Trust – Greyhoundhomer
£256 will to Pharmacist Support

Thank you so much for donating, encouraging, baking and selling – because of you, I consider my 30 years as a pharmacist truly celebrated!!
