Cake sale for Thornton Rose Riding Ability Group

A recent cake sale at Sainsbury’s Straiton helped Thornton Rose Riding Ability Group raise £275 in less than two hours!

Volunteers from Thornton Rose joined staff at the store in baking cakes for sale.

Saturday’s event also saw two large cakes – one with an equine theme, the other a Paralympic theme – raffled.

All proceeds will go to Thornton Rose RDA, which was recently named Sainsbury’s Straiton ‘Charity of the Year 2012’.

Also during the cake sale, the group received a surprise cheque for £2,000 from Sainsbury’s.

The event followed a fundraiser on Sunday, August 5, when Thornton Rose volunteers packed bags for the charity.

Chairman Jeff Allan said: “Sainsbury’s Straiton have assured me that this is only the beginning. They are planning many events over the year to raise funds for our charity.”
