Council charity cake sale and dress down day raises money for Syrian refugees crisis

Stratford Editorial 21st Sep, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

A CAKE sale and dress down day helped raise more than £340 towards the Syrian refugee crisis.

Earlier this month, Stratford District Council’s Cabinet agreed to do all it could to support the current crisis in the Middle East.

And staff from the authority were keen to get involved by holding a cake sale at the council’s Elizabeth House HQ on Friday morning (September 18).

As well as making and selling the tasty treats, council staff also took the opportunity to wear casual clothes to work for the day in exchange for donating £1 to the cause.

The council holds a charity dress down day in support of a staff-nominated charity on the first Friday of every month.

It has also taken part in Spinal Muscular Atrophy Support’s Christmas Jumper Day in the past while food donations were collected for Bromford Housing’s Christmas hampers last year.

The event raised a total of £346.
