The Barrow team recently hosted a week-long store bake sale to raise money for Crohn’s & Colitis UK.

The staff putt their best bakes forward, selling cakes and buns to customers all week, with all the money raised being donated to Crohn’s & Colitis UK.

Counting on your support

The fundraising effort is close to the hearts of the team in Barrow, with a member of the team recently losing a close family member to the illness.

The team has rallied together to support the cause, using the week to raise as much money as possible and also raise awareness of Crohn’s while doing so.

Fun day for all

Julie Dixon, store director at Barrow, said: ‘It was a great week hosting the bake sale as part of our fundraising – it’s been like Barrow’s very own bake off!

‘Many people are affected by Crohn’s Disease, and so for us to know that the work we’ve put into this bake sale is contributing to the work of Crohn’s & Colitis UK has been a source of real pride for the whole team.'
