Dorset police staff bake for the Power of Cake

Staff at Dorset Police Headquarters took on the £170 challenge for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to raise money for children and young people with cancer.

Dorset police staff bake for the Power of Cake

The team from Dorchester showed off their baking skills as they took part in CLIC Sargent's Power of Cake campaign - whipping up tasty treats to sell to workmates with aim of raising £170 in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

£170 is the grant that CLIC Sargent gives to families after a child is diagnosed with cancer, to stop unexpected costs like parking and petrol becoming a problem.

A worthwhile cause

Inspector Les Fry said: “We have a very enthusiastic team - when I asked if they would help me with a cake bake and sale for CLIC Sargent, all those who could were very keen to support what is a very worthwhile cause.

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is a fantastic opportunity to support children with cancer, and their families.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Joy Morley said: “I was so pleased to hear that Inspector Les Fry wanted to take part in the £170 challenge for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. It feels fantastic to have the support of the local police force.

“Money may seem unimportant when a child is diagnosed with cancer, but families caring for a child with cancer often find that their costs go up and their income goes down. Every £170 raised this September could help one more family move forward together.”
