26th November 2012 by TAG Farnborough Airport
TAG Farnborough Airport held a ‘Tasty Bake and Buy’ sale on Friday 23 November 2012, helping to raise £247.65 for the Vine Centre in Aldershot.
Employees from across the airport site brought home-baked cakes ranging from Victoria Sponges to Mocha Cakes to sell at the Apron Café over the day with all proceeds going to the Vine Centre, a charity that supports homeless and vulnerable people in Rushmoor and is the only provision of its kind in the area.
The event was organised by Katy Marlow, Office Co-ordinator, in support of the airport’s work with the Community Matters partnership, which has selected the Vine Centre as its chosen charity for 2012.
“The day was a great success and I would like to thank everyone who baked, bought and ate the fantastic cakes we had on sale. We were pleased to raise this amount in only one day,” said Marlow.
