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 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
