Want to make your cake earn cash for the Times & Star’s Hospice@Finkle Street Appeal?
Chambers Homecentre in Workington’s Oxford Street has been a long-time supporter of Hospice at Home West Cumbria, and getting involved in our Baking Frenzy Day for the appeal was the most natural thing for owner Alison Chambers.
The store has a popular Sugarcraft Corner which sells everything a baker could desire, and the team there have worked hard to create beautiful toppers using the Hospice@Finkle Street Appeal logo.
People can put them on top of their cakes when they sell them for the hospice.
Karen Tremble and Jackie Hadley have been making the edible toppers which can be used for our baking day on Wednesday, September 18.
They will be sold in store and all money will go to the the Times & Star’s Hospice @Finkle Street Appeal.
Mrs Chambers said: “I lost my mum about 30 years ago and there was no hospice then. It is such a good service, helping many people in the area.
“We’ve always made edible toppers in store.
“It’s a good way to help raise money for the campaign by making toppers with the hospice logo on. We’re happy to support the campaign.”
