Staff hold charity bake sale
2:20pm Saturday 29th September 2012 in Cornwall
Staff at Helston’s branch of Barclays managed to have their cake and eat it when they held a charity bake sale.
They set up a stall selling cakes, baked and brought in by staff, throughout the day to raise funds for children’s bereavement support charity Penhaligon’s Friends.
Customers were asked for a donation in exchange for a slice of cake, with lemon and blueberry cake, Victoria Sponge and a selection of buns among the offerings.
Organised by customer advisor Joe Sandles – dressed as a giant monkey for the day – the event raised £263.
With match funding from Barclays, this has seen a total of £526 collected for the charity.
