Cake loving staff at Nurse Plus raised over £2,300 during a nationwide bake sale at the company to raise funds for its official charity partner, Leonard Cheshire Disability.
Cake stands were set up at 41 branches, with staff, clients and members of the public coming along to sample the sweet treats in return for a donation.
One particularly talented individual contributed to the day with a homemade cake, decorated with a clover featuring colours visible to the visually impaired. Laura, who has high spectrum autism, regularly visits the St Helen branch with her mum who is a Nurse Plus Healthcare Assistant.
Pamela Bruce, Nurse Plus Managing Director, commented: “We’ve always taken fundraising efforts here at Nurse Plus very seriously and our latest achievement drives us to continue this great work.
“We’re delighted to be supporting Leonard Cheshire and that the money raised will go towards supporting disabled people across the local community and helping them to achieve their full potential.”
Since its establishment in 2005, Nurse Plus has fundraised for local and national charities, although the link with Leonard Cheshire will be its first official charitable partnership.
Many of Leonard Cheshire’s valuable services share geographical locations with Nurse Plus branches, providing opportunities for local fundraising, as well as relationships, to develop.
