Bakery Raises £500 for the Royal British Legion
Stacey’s Bakery raised £500 for the Royal British Legion by selling poppy cupcakes.
The bakery, which has shops in Ilkeston, Heanor and Eastwood created the special cakes in dedication to the charity which raises funds for the armed forces through its annual Poppy Appeal.
The proceeds from sales of the cakes were presented to Lily Clements, community fundraiser for the RBL.
She said: “We are really thankful to Stacey’s Bakery for their kind and generous donation from the sales of their poppy cakes. Their donation will help support today’s Armed Forces community through hardships, injury and bereavements.
“The work of the legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded.”
Of the £500, £350 came from cakes sales at the four shops, with £150 coming from donations.
Owner, David Stacey, said: “We were delighted to support such a great cause and hope to continue to raise funds for the legion in the future by getting involved with its work in the town.”
Every year Stacey’s Bakery chooses a charity to raise funds for.
Stacey’s Bakery shops are situated on Bath Street and South Street in Ilkeston, Market Street in Heanor and Nottingham Road in Eastwood.
The Royal British Legion is a registered charity providing lifelong support for the Armed Forces community - serving men and women, veterans and their families.
