On Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited by Tracy to BNY Mellon to attend a Cake Bake fund raiser in aid of Whitechapel Mission. Armed with a couple of cakes and cup cakes I went to the amazing views of the 49th floor of one Cabot Square.
BNY are trying raising enough funds to pay for the hire of a coach to give our service users a day out in Southend. We know the cost of this is £545.
The staff at BNY were truly committed, the tables were heaving with cakes and biscuits; a veritable feast of flavours and the staff, during their lunch break came and supported the initiative with vigour. It was fantastic! We sold the lot within a couple of hours.
The monies raised, £571 which will be match funded by BNY Mellon, has more than covered the coach hire, we will be able to provide some lunch too.
A massive thank you to BNY Mellon; also to Tracy and her team for organising and supporting the Whitechapel Mission. You are a star.
