Charity Halloween Bake Sale a Sweet Success

Last week, UKCS staff organised a Halloween bake sale to raise funds for the ‘Brew for Blake’ charity.

Staff brought in their home baked goodies which were spread around the office in Felixstowe for friends, family and colleagues to purchase.  Decorations were put up, and halloween costumes were worn.

As you can see in the gallery below, the offerings were plentiful and there were a few spooky characters lurking about to sample the treats.

Most importantly, the event raised over £650 for our chosen charity which supports sufferers of Hereditary Multiple Exostoses, in particular young local resident Blake Ainsley and his brothers.

In a message to staff, Blake’s mother Lucy expressed her thanks:

“It was a great turnout and exceeded my expectations. The money raised will make a difference to the charity, and again I am really grateful for everyone’s efforts”

Well done to all involved, especially Laura Starling and Chloe Gulliford who worked hard to ensure the event was a success.
