Digby Brown Bake Sale Raises Over a Thousand Pounds for Local Charities

People with arms linked

All of Digby Brown’s seven offices across Scotland held a bake sale as part of their efforts to raise vital funds for their local charity partners.

Each Digby Brown office has chosen a local charity to support and have been hard at work fundraising throughout 2016.

This bake sale was just one of the many fundraising events our offices have taken part in. We have seen charity quizzes, walks, marathons, Tough Mudder challenge, charity cycle and a zip line off a roof - we sit in anticipation waiting to find out what each office will do next!

This charity bake sale was held by every office on Friday 16th September and raised an incredible £1,250 for their local charity partners - a small slice of all their fundraising efforts so far.

They support individuals who have been affected by limb loss and help them re-build their lives by offering counselling, rehabilitation, financial help and support from of a large network of people.

Their bake sale alone raised over £200 and helps towards all the other fundraising activities and support they have provided throughout the year.
