Cakes Galore: Pure Raises Money For Macmillan

Posted on the 16th October 2020

It is more important than ever in these difficult times to support fellow charities. That is why this year we continued with our annual events to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Thank you to everyone who helped us collect a current total of £370 for the charity.

The Kitchen

Our bakery The Kitchen has been selling boxes of delicious cakes to staff at Wythenshawe Hospital with all proceeds going to Macmillan. Staff have been ordering £5 boxes with three cakes in each box, which we then deliver to them. Clients have been involved in baking and as you can see above also helping to make the cake boxes.

All the cake are fresh and homemade at The Kitchen bakery. There’s a range of cakes to choose from including sticky toffee, carrot cake, our popular Malteaser tiffin and many more. The staff have all been so happy with their cakes raising a total of £67.50 so far.

Here is what hospital staff member Heather said about the cakes she purchased from The Kitchen.

Etherow Park Cafe

Etherow Park Cafe spent a full week raising money for Macmillan selling the £5 cakes boxes and tea cups filled with ginger biscuits for just £1. Altogether, they raised £106.40!

 Jonathan Burns Centre

Our Pure Support base in Middleton held a raffle. They have sold tickets with the chance to win a hamper of goodies. These included chocolates, soaps and cool gifts made by clients at our Creative Hub.
