Earlier this week, our little team of multi-talented individuals organised a Christmas bake sale to raise money in support of two charities selected by staff. Yesterday, we donated a total of £277.48 to Fresh Start and Contact the Elderly.
We would like to thank our staff for their donations and fantastic baking! We would also like to thank Technopole Park Management for their support and help in raising awareness of the bake sale, and all the surrounding businesses whose staff stopped by to contribute.
With the help and financial contributions from everyone and our staff included, we managed to raise £138.74 from the bake sale. Dukosi Management decided to match the funds raised and the money was split evenly between both charities.
