Law firm serves up a treat for cancer charity

Staff at a Gloucester law firm have been baking cakes to support a local cancer charity.

Equilaw raised nearly £250 after holding the bake sale and coffee morning at its HQ at Gloucester Business Park to raise funds for its nominated charity of the year, Maggie's Cheltenham.

The event was well supported and Sara Day, a member of the firm's charity committee, said: "We have some fantastic bakers in the firm. Thank you to everyone who baked or had cakes baked for them.

"We would also like to thank everyone who came along and supported us and we raised a fantastic £246 for Maggie's.

"I have family members who have benefited enormously from the help and support that Maggie's offers and I am so grateful that Equilaw has chosen Maggie's Cheltenham as its charity of the year."

Maggie's Cheltenham, which is based in College Baths Road near to the general hospital, offers practical, emotional and social support to people diagnosed with cancer and their families.
