I like to cook, and the Bank where I worked had a Dress Down Day on the last Friday of the month.
Participants paid £1 to dress casually, and the company matched whatever was raised and sent a cheque to the charity pulled out of the hat containing those put forward by staff.
Mine was Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and when it was selected, I asked if I could bake to raise a bit more money.

I made gingerbread, carrot cake, bread pudding, a victoria sponge sandwich, coconut cake, chocolate cake, rock buns and flapjacks, and when I arrived in the foyer Friday morning, the messengers had set up a table for me with a donation box on it.
Nothing was priced and people put in what they wanted.

My cakes sold out way before coffee breaks and raised around £85. With the dress down contributions as well, my charity received a cheque for £375, so I was over the moon with that and judging by the letter of thanks the Bank received from them, so were they.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
