On Friday, February 6, a cheque presentation was held at Bakers & Larners of Holt for the CT Baker Group’s chosen charities of 2014. Managing Director Mr Michael Baker was delighted to present cheques to The East Anglian Air Ambulance, The Holt Youth Project and The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House.

Budgens of Holt raised a total of £7423.70 for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, a fantastic effort from all of the staff who organised raffles, tombola’s and cake sales throughout the year. The chosen charity for Bakers and Larners was the Norfolk Hospice, who received a cheque for £1902.91 raised through raffles, donations from sales and fundraising events. In addition, the sum of £1891.20 was raised through the sponsorship and sale of the Tapping House Holt Christmas card, collection boxes in store and Mr Baker’s ‘arrest’ for crimes against fashion in March 2014!

A cheque was also presented to the Holt Youth Project for £1735.76 in respect of monies raised through carrier bag sales in Bakers and Larners Food Hall and Budgens of Holt.

The charities selected for 2015 have been named as RNLI, Holt Branch for Bakers and Larners and Dogs for the Disabled for Budgens of Holt. Carrier bag sales this year will be donated to the North Norfolk branch of the MS Society.

The CT Baker Group would like to thank all employees for a fantastic effort throughout the year and above all want to recognise the dedication and vital work of these three local charities.
