Coultons Bread sponsors Help for Heroes fundraiser in Tottington, Bury

Coultons Bread Ltd are proud to be associated with this prestigious charity event, held at Greenmount Cricket Club  in Tottington, Bury in Lancashire , and are main sponsors under their Bakestone brand banner.

 

The organisers behind this event are Andrew and Terri Eccles who are the Tenant landlords  of the local pub “The Dungeon Inn”  located in the village of Tottington, and they work tirelessly all year round to raise money for the Help for Heroes charity. They organise  fundraising events throughout the year to raise awareness and last year they raised an awesome amount of money.

The community really did dig deep, but this year we are hoping to raise even more.

The charity itself needs to raise millions each year to help as many ex-servicemen and women as possible get back to leading a full life just like many of us are fortunate to have.

From Eccles to London

Well what a great experience we just had. Our merry team of ladies and myself worked really hard at The Fine Food Speciality show at Olympia Exhibition hall this week. We had been in London for 4 days promoting our unique Eccles cakes from Eccles in Lancashire.

Eccles is “the home of eccles cakes” and we met some lovely people who ate our product samples and said they were gorgeous. Their words not mine I hasten to add.

Older folk seemed to know what they were, but the younger people, and people from around the world had never heard of them loved them.

It was our first time that we had done a trade show and it is really hard on your legs and feet and you are really glad to get back to the hotel for that lovely hot bath to ease your aching body. I know I sound a bit dramatic, and it’s probably nothing like running a marathon or climbing a mountain. I think it’s because you are just stood around in the same sort of spot for hours.

So you ask was it worth it?  well we got a lot of interest,  and we will look through all the business cards we collected,  and speak to potential customers over the coming weeks.

You never know what may come of it, one day you could be eating one of our gorgeous eccles cakes.
