Bake sale and Tombola Fundraiser for the Thomas Henson Memorial Fund


On Sunday 3rd March 2019 we held our very first bake sale and tombola in memory of Tom, at the Pillar of Rock, a Wetherspoons pub in Bolsover, Derbyshire. It went extremely well! We were blessed to have a lot of creative and gifted bakers who kindly baked and donated so many lovely cakes to our sale. When we laid it all out on the tables, we got worried that we wouldn’t manage to sell it all, there was so much! We really needn’t have worried, as an amazing number of people turned up and we were rushed off our feet trying to cater to them all. Within two hours it had all gone and we had raised a fantastic £1116.97, which will be used to support CRY’s core activities of research, screening, support and awareness. A huge thank you to everyone who helped raise this fantastic sum of money: the bakers, the helpers, the management team at the Pillar of Rock for very kindly letting us use their premises and to all the lovely people who came along and bought those delicious looking cakes. I say looking, as I’m just gutted I didn’t get any cake – I was on the tombola…. A big mistake which I hope to put right next time! We, and the management team at the Pillar of Rock, are looking forward to that time very much.
