Calling for fundraising support for the victims of the terrible Earthquake in Turkey and Syria

A family in our community run a brilliant bakery and coffee shop in Maidenhead. They have family, friends and relatives in the region affected by the recent earthquake. I am pleased to share this with you all. Please be generous.

“Dear Mr. Wilding,

I wanted to get in touch with you asking for a potential help from Claires Court Schools for our fund raising event at bakedd artisan bakery for the people who are suffering from the recent earthquake that happened in East part of Turkey.

As we have posted on our social media and announced on BBC Berkshire and Maidenhead Advertiser, we will be organising a fund raiser event at bakedd tomorrow and we will donate all our sales proceeds to a non profit charity called Ahbap ( who are helping the people in need.

I would like to ask if you would be able to execute a donation event like Free Jeans day at Claires Court Schools to help us spread the word and help to create more donations for us to send to Turkey.

We are planning to send all the donations and the sales proceeds by Monday next week, that’s why it is such a short notice.

Thanks for your kind help in advance.”

And 24 hours later, Emre is able to post:
