Bake sale’s £130 means funds are rising at ambucopter shop

NURSERY children have helped to raise more than £130 for a charity shop flooded by criminals trying to steal copper pipes from the flat above.

Tots at Town and Country Kiddies in Market Rasen spent two days baking all kinds of delicious cakes and then staff held a bake sale to raise money for the town’s Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance shop.

Deputy manager Zoe Oyston said: “It went extremely well – there was a huge response from people in Market Rasen and we managed to raise a lot of money, which is the important thing.”

The stall at the Market Rasen Lincolnshire Co-operative store had all kinds of different cakes including cheesecake, sponge cake, fairy cakes, chocolate cake, crispy cakes, brownies and flapjacks

The charity shop is now open but had been forced to close in the busy run-up to Christmas due to a flood caused by criminals trying to steal copper pipes from the flat above.

The shop had to be gutted an missed out on thousands of pounds of takings.
