Friday 7th October saw the first ever Salisbury Business Bake Off!

Organised by the Salisbury Rotary and Chamber Community Group, the Salisbury Business Bake Off raised a grand total of £943 for local charities including Morning Star and new Tisbury based charity, Clevah.

Event leader, Kara Rogers of Bassets Sales & Lettings said, “21 fantastic local organisations supported our event by baking goodies to sell in their workplaces. The generosity of the Salisbury business community has been over whelming.”

£377 will be donated to Morning Star who provide a Banquet Run in the city centre 4 days a week for those who are homeless and vulnerable. They also have The New Life Centre which is a residential family unit for those who are suffering with drug and alcohol addictions.

Also receiving £377 is Tisbury’s new charity, Clevah. Clevah has been set up in remembrance of 15 year old Maddy Cruxton, who sadly passed away after fighting a 12 year battle with cancer. The charity aims to support specialists and ward teachers to deliver exciting and creative learning experiences for chronically ill children who are in hospital.

£189 will be donated to Salisbury Rotary Charities.

Congratulations to Bassets Sales & Lettings who were the fundraising champions; they raised a staggering £202. As their prize, the team at Bassets will enjoy 5 large pizzas, which have kindly been donated by Domino’s on Fisherton Street. In second place was Natwest who raised a fantastic £125 and in third place was Your Mortgage Expert who raised £108.

The Salisbury Rotary & Chamber Community Group would like to thank all of the businesses who supported the Salisbury Business Bake Off, as well as everybody who purchased treats from these businesses. We couldn’t have raised this staggering amount of money without the support of the Salisbury business community.
