Woodley’s Chapter One celebrates Comic Relief

Chapter One Bookshop in Woodley, celebrated Comic Relief in style on Friday.Staff and customers baked cakes and donned there red noses to put a smile on everyone’s faces and raise money for charity and was all part of The Great Comic Relief Bakeoff.

The bookshop was also promoting David Walliams’ new title entitled The Queen’s Arang-utan, with all proceeds going to Comic Relief.

Lesley, who works at the shop, said: “Everyone got involved for Comic Relief and we had our own British Bake Off. A couple of customers made some of the cakes and some were made by staff. The cakes looked and tasted delicious”.

The original target was £65 to raise money for one health worker in South Africa to get around by mountain bike, but the final total was actually £193.12 meaning that 3 health workers will get a bike.

Lesley added: “We had already broken our target by Thursday but to raise the amount that we have is great – it just shows what a generous bunch of people, the people from Woodley are.”
