Co-operative Funeralcare team raise funds for Raystede

Real dedication to fund-raising was shown at The Co-operative Funeralcare in Uckfield High Street yesterday.

Members of staff, with help from family, were running a cake stall outside their office to raise funds for Raystede animal charity and they didn’t have a scrap of shade as the sun beat down.

Funeral co-ordinators Nicola White and Jan Pink were supported by Nicola’s mother Rosie – who made all the cakes, biscuits, and dog treats – and Nicola’s daughter Lily, 12, who was chief taster, even for the dog biscuits.

It was so hot that only a few cakes were displayed outside, the remainder stayed in the air-conditioned office.

A hamper was also raffled to boost fund-raising and people were able to guess how many sweets there were in a jar.
