|Royal Marines Cake|
During the week of 22nd to 28th October 2012, The Vanilla Pod Bakery was excited to help raise much needed funds and awareness for the Royal Marine’s Charitable Trust Fund. We took part in their Cakes for Commando’s Week by raffling a delicious and appropriately themed, Vanilla Pod 8” round cake. We did this through our Facebook page and a Just Giving page, exclusively set up for the event. This was the first time we had raised funds through a social media raffle and for Royal Marines.
Facebook was fantastic in raising awareness for Cakes for Commando’s week. The Royal Marine’s wives and girlfriends (WAGS) were brilliant in helping us through the support of their Facebook pages too. Owner, Pia was chuffed to chat to Claire Carter on BBC Radio Gloucestershire on the Friday and the lovely Total Star FM also gave us a great shout out.

The raffle was drawn on Saturday the 27th October, and the lucky winner was Tim. We hope he enjoyed the cake!
The Vanilla Pod Bakery had a fantastic week and raised £68.75 for the Royal Marine’s Charitable Trust Fund. We received a lovely letter thanking Vanilla Pod for our support and donations.
