Audley Inglewood raises £400 for The Bruce Trust

Posted in News on 8th July 2014

The Bruce Trust, which provides canal boat holidays for disabled, disadvantaged or elderly people on the Kennet and Avon Canal, were thrilled to be approached earlier this year by newly opened Audley Inglewood Retirement Village in Kintbury, who offered to host an event and raise money in aid of the Trust.

Working together the two organisations came up with the idea of a coffee morning and bake-off competition, to be held in the beautiful grounds of the retirement village. The village owners, along with the local community and Trust volunteers and supporters, were invited to attend this event on Friday 4th July from 11am – 1pm to enjoy a cuppa and piece of homemade cake and, for those brave enough, to enter their baking creations into a competition with the prize of vouchers for afternoon tea at Inglewood being kindly donated by the retirement village.

The sun was shining brightly on the day and a huge amount of people came along to the event bringing delicious and beautifully presented cakes with them and by the end of the morning all the cakes were completely sold out and a fantastic amount of £407 had been raised for the Trust.

Rebecca Bruce from The Bruce Trust says, “It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team at Audley Inglewood this year. We were honoured that this new and local organisation wanted to help us and delighted that the event was so well attended and everyone was so generous”.
