Cakes galore at charity garden open day!

23 May 2017

A cake sale at a Ripley garden open day has raised over £400 for Surrey homelessness charity Transform Housing & Support.

Dunsborough Park in Ripley hosted a garden open day on Saturday 20 May and invited Transform Housing & Support to run a charity tea stall at the event for the fourth year in a row.

Volunteers from Transform served tea, coffee and homemade cakes – which had been baked by staff, board members, supporters and friends of Transform.

Despite the unpredictable rain showers throughout the day, a steady stream of visitors to the gardens stopped for a cup of tea and a piece of homemade cake.

An additional element was added to the cake stall this year, giving visitors an opportunity to enter a free prize draw to win a £45 voucher for a cheesecake of their choice from Pleesecakes.

The money raised will support our work with homeless and vulnerable people in the Guildford, Woking and Elmbridge areas. 

Paul Mitchell, Chief Executive of Transform Housing & Support, said:

Thank you to everyone who came to Dunsborough Park on Sunday and supported Transform. I would like to thank the owners of Dunsborough Park, Baron and Baroness Sweerts de Landas Wyborgh, for kindly supporting Transform for the fourth year running. We are very grateful for the chance to raise funds and awareness for Transform in such a beautiful setting.
