Tea party cake sale for cancer charity

DELICIOUS cakes and doughnuts helped two fundraisers to donate more than �1,000 to charity.

Claire Stanley and Cath Foster, who work in the communications department at the Avon and Somerset Constabulary headquarters in Portishead, held a strawberry tea party to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

The event was a huge success and many people had a go at baking their own treats for the sale.

Claire and Cath are also extremely grateful to Portishead business The Cup Cake Bakery and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts in Bristol, which donated more than 300 items to be eaten.

Cath said: “We are thrilled that everyone dug deep to help such a great cause. Not only did our friends and family and colleagues at the police support us, we also had a number of visitors from outside who travelled to police HQ for the event.”

Claire added: “In total over �900 was raised and the remainder of the cash was kindly donated by the Police of Property Fund. ”

The friends are hoping to organise further events later in the year. To donate to the cause visit www.justgiving.com/Claire-Stanley
