Merit Recruitment - Charity Bake Sale

Merit Recruitment: Charity Bake Sale!

We are pleased to announce our Charity Bake Sale on 21st June for Ark Day, a community fundraising project to support the Ark Cancer Centre Charity!

What is ARK Cancer Centre Charity?

According to the official Ark Cancer Centre Charity website:

“Ark Cancer Centre Charity is raising £5million towards a cancer treatment centre, to be built by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Chemotherapy treatment is already available in Basingstoke and Winchester, and while radiotherapy is now available in Basingstoke, most patients still have to travel to Southampton or Guildford for their treatment.

This can mean a journey every day for up to six weeks when patients are feeling unwell and vulnerable.”

Our bake sale is one of many fundraisers occurring on 21st June 2019. This day is known as ARK Day, and will be aimed at raising money for this much needed cancer treatment facility.

When and where is our Charity Bake Sale?

Our charity bake sale is on Friday 21st June 2019.

It will be held in the Merit Offices, located at Haymarket House, Basingstoke. We are close to Festival Place and CEX on the high street.

The Bake Sale will be running throughout the day from 8:30am – 5pm.

And the best part? All goods will be home-baked by our recruitment team and staff!

For more information about our charity bake sale, please visit our Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin.

What will we be baking?

We are still deciding on what to include in our baking list. Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, and fudge cakes are currently the favourites among the recruiters in the office.

If you have any baking suggestions, pop into the Merit offices before 14th June and give us your ideas. We’d love to hear from you.

How can I show my support?

You can show your support right now by sharing the news of our Bake Sale to your friends and family. We want to raise as much money as possible, but we can’t do that without your help!

It is very easy to spread the word. You can either click “Interested” on our Facebook event – which you can do here – or share this news article on social media. You can also reach out to anyone in your local area to make sure they get the news!

But most importantly of all, mark Friday 21st June on your calendar, pop by the Merit Offices, and grab yourself a sweet treat!
