They were queueing up and then they needed to restock twice from Sainsbury's! Our bun stalls to raise money for Help the Heroes had a tremendous response.

Held at HRI, CRH and Broad Street Plaza, together they raised £351, with the doughnuts being a huge hit. Help the Heroes wrote to our Recruitment Team Leader, Alex Jowett to thank them for organising (see below).

Alex, said: "We couldn't believe there was a queue at HRI when we started the sale, and then to run out twice was amazing! People were so generous with one person giving us £10 for a piece of cake. A huge amount of effort went into the sale and we want to thank a very long list of people for their support:

  2. Katie Dyson
  3. Siobhan Symons
  4. Jason Bushby
  5. William Ainslie

  9. Lydia Myzak (volunteer)
  10. Chloe Goodwin
  11. Isobel Bogdani
