KB bakes pink

18/06/2009

PINK fever has taken over one business in the lead-up to Saturdays Pink Ladies Sunset Coastal Walk. A team of 12 staff at Kleinwort Benson will be taking part in the walk and to boost their fund-raising efforts they will be holding a pink cake and book sale tomorrow.

On offer will be a selection of books donated by staff members and a range of pink-themed cakes and treats for colleagues to buy.

‘I am really looking forward to Saturday as I think there will be a great atmosphere and a real feeling of sisterhood team spirit,’ said Sandra Platts, managing director of Kleinwort Benson in Guernsey, who will be donning her walking boots to take part in the walk.

She said as a company they were keen to raise as much money as possible for the Pink Ladies and Les Bourgs, who will also benefit from funds raised by the walk, as both organisations offer an invaluable service to the island.

‘Our sports and social committee came up with the great idea of holding a pink cake and book sale as an additional fund-raiser.
‘We have some fantastic bakers among the team here so our charity cake sales always go down well with members of staff, even those allegedly on diets, so I am sure tomorrow will be a real success,’ she said.
