ThinkPR Stirs Up a Spell of Spooky Bakes for Charity

ThinkPR is one step closer to reaching its impressive target of £10,000 as part of a year-long anniversary fundraising campaign in this, its 10th year.

The Halloween themed bake sale raised more than £350 for the Alfie Milne Trust, a local Aberdeen charity which aims to promote research into effective treatments and a cure for Lymphangiomatosis, bringing the fundraising total up to £7,600.

The 16-strong ThinkPR team welcomed visitors to sample a selection of delicious cakes in return for charitable donations. The team whipped up an array of home-baked treats which included batches of Rocky Road to Hell Crispies, Creepy Cupcakes and Lemon Devil Drizzle Cake.

Annabel Sall, CEO of ThinkPR said: “Supporting a local charity has been a great way to celebrate our 10th year in business. We have organised a number of successful fundraising activities throughout the year to ensure we reach our £10,000 goal.

“The Halloween bake sale was a fun event that encouraged local businesses, clients and friends to visit us, pick up a Friday treat, and help make our fundraising campaign a success. The Alfie Milne Trust is a very deserving cause and we knew when we met with Alfie’s mum that every penny raised would benefit the charity. We have more events planned including a ladies night this month, which we are very excited about.”

The Alfie Milne Trust was established by the parents of seven-year-old Aberdeenshire boy Alfie Milne, who has Lymphangiomatosis, an extremely rare and incurable disease of the Lymphatic system causing benign tumours to spread throughout the body. Its aim is to promote research that will ultimately identify effective treatments and a cure.

Throughout 2014 ThinkPR has raised funds through a number of successful activities including a quiz and auction night, individual 10K runs, a Shrove Tuesday pancake delivery, Wimbledon strawberry drop and 5K mud obstacle race. To show your support and make a donation visit our Just giving page here.
