CK take part in the Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day

On Thursday the 14th of June the staff at the CK headquarters in Chesterfield took part in the Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day for the 2nd year running. The day was a brilliant success, raising over £300 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

We hand delivered invites to all the employees of the companies at the the Bridge Business Centre where the Chesterfield office is located and we made a sign and we placed it at the entrance to the estate.

Everyone at CK HQ baked wonderful cupcakes, we had chocolate fudge cupcakes, raspberry ripple cupcakes, vegan brownies, gluten free marsh mellow cupakes, ladybird cupcakes, rocky road and the list goes on.

Cupcake Day for Alzheimers

We were delighted that a great many people came from other organisations on the estate, one company that is a global leader in metal flow engineering asked us to hand deliver over 20 cupcakes since they could not leave the office.

It was great to catch up with people and make new acquaintances, some shared their experiences with family members who had Alzheimer’s and how it had touched their lives.

Last year we also hosted Cupcake Day in support of Alzheimer’s but this year we were very pleased to have raised over £80 more than last year.
