Colas - we go further

Baking for Ben

Mon, 27 Apr 2015

Working with Ballasalla Primary School, Colas have been helping to raise money to go towards a community memorial bench for Ben Collister. Ben, a former employee and student at Ballasalla Primary School sadly passed away last Christmas following a road traffic collision.

To help raise funds for the bench Colas office staff have been carrying out their very own "Great British Bake Off". A selection of cupcakes, fruit loafs and slices are being sold throughout the various offices and weighbridges with the donations going towards the bench. Big thanks to Janet Gale, Margaret Collister, Carolyn Phythian & Liz Meredith for all their culinary delights and help. However there is now serious need for a Colas gym to help work them off!

After two weeks of solid cake and biscuit eating throughout the Colas group our staff have managed to raise £136.63 to go towards the new memorial bench for Ben.
