Bake sale is icing on the cake for hospice

10 January 2017

Rayleigh residents proved the icing on the cake for an Essex hospice charity by raising hundreds of pounds in a bake sale.

Tenants at Sanctuary Housing’s retirement living complex Britton Court, in Eastwood Road, raised £270 for Havens Hospices’ Helping Hands.

Along with cake stalls, residents and visitors also enjoyed a raffle and music from an entertainer to help bring in cash for the good cause.

Helping Hands raises money for Little Havens Hospice for children in Thundersley and Fair Havens Hospice for adults in Westcliff on Sea. The hospices provide respite care for seriously ill people across Essex and support for their family and friends but rely on donations to continue their work.

Pauline Kentish, Sanctuary Housing’s scheme manager for Britton Court, said: “Residents enjoyed baking up a treat to support such a worthy cause as Havens Hospices that helps so many people in our neighbourhoods across Rochford and Rayleigh.”
