Charity of the Year Presentation

It was a pleasure to welcome the C T Baker Budgens of Holt and Aylsham 2016 charities of the year to the C T Baker Group cheque presentation on 9th February 2017.

Over the course of the year, C T Baker Budgens of Aylsham of Holt, alongside Bakers and Larners of Holt, were pleased to raise over £20,000 for their local charities – the highest total raised by the stores to date.

As part of this figure, we were glad to present ‘The Mardler’ talking newspaper with the funds raised from our 5p carrier bag charge at Budgens of Aylsham and Holt, and Bakers and Larners in 2016.

– Friends of Kelling Hospital (C T Baker Budgens of Holt 2016 charity of the year) – £8,240.00

– Camphill Communities Thornage Hall (Bakers and Larners 2016 charity of the year) – £1,929.41

– The Mardler talking newspaper – £2,659.10

– Holt Friday Club – £500
