Fundraising total is the icing on the cake

Fundraising total is the icing on the cake

Caketober 2014 was even bigger and better than we could have hoped for – raising a fantastic £4,670.67.

This tops the2013 total by more than £1,500 and we’re hoping to see the fundraising and calorie consumption go up even more in 2015

Businesses, organisations and community groups of all shapes and sizes across Greater Manchester threw themselves into the challenge and their efforts weren’t too crumby….dressing up, baking cakes and tweeting us with many a weird and wonderful #CakeFace on Twitter.

Heartfelt thanks to the following groups and businesses across Greater Manchester that got involved in last year’s Caketober. We hope to see plenty of old and new faces rising to the challenge and picking up their spatulas again in 2015…!
