Janet’s Sweet Success for Rosemere

Longridge farmer’s wife turned cake maker Janet Wallbank used her baking skills to raise £1,355 for Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

Janet, with help from daughter Harriet Sharrock, organised and hosted a coffee morning in Longridge Civic Hall at which her cakes were both served and sold from a stall in September. There was also a bottle tombola and a raffle.  In addition Longridge craftswoman, Judith Pickup, sold knitted and crocheted items to help raise £310.00 towards this fantastic total.

In conjunction with the coffee morning, Janet, whose cake-making business Janet’s Cakes is a feature of both Longridge and Clitheroe Markets, took baskets of cakes to a number of town centre businesses which sold them to boost the coffee morning’s donation.
