The generous Abergavenny public have helped their local Specsavers to raise money for a children’s charity by holding a bake sale in-store.

Themed fundraiser

The team on Frogmore Street brought in a number of cakes, muffins and shortbreads to raise funds for the Carmarthenshire-based charity, Cerebra.

Cerebra supports children with brain conditions, such as cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome, and their families by providing advice and one-to-one support for them. Its Innovation Centre in Swansea creates bespoke items – such as wheelchairs and surfboards – for children, to help make their lives easier.

Generous customers

Sejal Shah, director at Specsavers in Abergavenny, says: ‘The work that Cerebra carries out across Wales is phenomenal. For the families of children with brain conditions, daily events most of us take for granted – such as having a good night’s sleep – can become very difficult. The help and support provided by the charity means that families don’t have to manage this on their own.

‘We are always keen to support charitable causes and with culinary TV programmes rising in popularity, we felt holding a Cerebra bake sale was the perfect way for us to help raise some funds. Thanks to the generosity of our customers in Abergavenny, we were able to do our bit for this great charity.’
