Housebuilder Miller Homes enjoyed the taste of sweet success when it raised more than £900 for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity during National Baking Week recently.
Bake it Better bake sales and other fundraising activities took place at selected Miller Homes developments across the country; including Stonebridge Fold in East Ardsley and Fairfield Manor, Wakefield. Additionally a bake sale and cake raffle were held at the housebuilder’s head office in Edinburgh to further boost funds.
Money raised through the bake sales, held from October 14-20, will help Great Ormond Street Hospital to continue to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families and to fund pioneering new treatments and research for childhood illness.
Chris Endsor, chief executive, Miller Homes, said: “Our National Baking Week activities last week were a great success, and we are delighted with the combined total raised for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. The events held at our developments really helped bring the local community together and there was lots of fun and laughter.
“We’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who got involved and helped make our events so successful.”
Great Ormond Street’s senior fundraising executive Hayley Richardson, Senior Fundraising Executive, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: “We were delighted to team up with National Baking Week this year and would like to thank Miller Homes for their support in organising these bake sales.
“The money will make a real difference to patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital by helping us to deliver our world class care in 21st century facilities. We are improving our facilities and building our capacity so we can treat more children.”
