Bakers raise £1,800 for children's hospices in the region

BAKERS swapped their rolling pins for walking boots when they took part in a charity ramble for three children’s hospices.
About 35 staff members from Thomas the Baker raised more than £1,800 for Martin House Hospice, Boston Spa; Forget Me Not, Huddersfield; and Butterwick House, Middlesbrough, with an eight mile walk around North Yorkshire.
The two and a half hour sponsored walk started out at Thomas the Baker in Helmsley, and then headed north towards the edge of the North York Moors, before arriving back in Helmsley.
All three hospices provide care for children and young people with progressive life-limiting illness, as well as support for their families.
Chris Chapman from Thomas the Baker said: “We couldn’t believe we raised so much and everyone was very generous with their support and time."
