Specsavers in Ripley unleashed their inner bakers this month as they offered homemade goodies to customers in return for a donation to charity.

The team have pledged to raise funds for local charity Home Start, who they have supported for several years. All the funds raised from the cake sale and charity buckets in store will be added to the store’s ongoing total and donated in a lump sum at the end of the year.

A word from the store director

‘We’ve got a year of fundraising activities planned in aid of our nominated charity, Home Start, and we were delighted by the support offered from the local community at our bake sale,’ said Ripley store director Kuldip Dosanjh.

‘Thanks to all those who donated and we hope everyone enjoyed our delicious cakes.’
