A cake stall run by Layla Blades at the Centre on 10 November has raised more than £900 for Diabetes UK with a promise of a further £1,000 from a charitable Trust.
Lorna Blades said her 2-year old daughter Layla, who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes four years ago, was ‘very, very happy’ that her idea for fundraising had been such a success. “She already had £130 in donations plus £120 in a collection tin from customers at the White Swan in Exning and on the day everyone was amazingly generous”, said Lorna. ”We had people who bought a £2 cake and told us to keep the change out of a £10 note”.
Layla also wanted to say a special thank you to Tesco, The Pantry, Premier Travel and Exning businesses the White Swan, White Horse and Regency Cakes, all of which gave donations, gifts or raffle prizes.
