Sweet success! More money raised for charity during the Farnworth Rose bake off

By


Over the past couple of weeks, the Farnworth Rose team have raised yet more money for the Pendleside Hospice after hosting our very own bake off.

As a celebration of our tenth year in business, Farnworth Rose are hosting a number of fundraisers all to raise money for our chosen charity.

The past two weeks have seen yet another fundraiser ticked off, as we hosted our own charity bake off in a bid to increase our total amount raised for the hospice.

The event was inspired by national cupcake week, as numerous members of the ‘Farny Army’ brought a variety of their creations into our Nelson office.

As the week drew to a close, the bake off was eventually extended for a second week as more and more people were eager to show off their baking skills.

And we are delighted to reveal that the total amount in donations which was raised as a result of the Farnworth Rose bake off stands at a superb £53.21.

Our very own bake off wouldn’t have been complete without crowning a ‘star baker’ so congratulations to conveyancing administrator Joanne Pollard, who took home the award for her ‘JoPo & Katie’s cupcake creations’.

The money raised from the FRBO now edges us ever closer to our overall fundraising target of £5,000.

A few words from our director

“It has been great to have a selection of delicious treats available to us in the office over the course of the past two weeks, yet it has been even more satisfying to have raised more money for Pendleside during the process.

“A massive thank you to all the staff who have contributed and made this fundraiser a possibility.

“We are by no means finished with regards to fundraising, so stay tuned for the latest on our charitable ventures”.

Janet Lalor
Director at Farnworth Rose
