VETERINARY practice staff turned their hands to baking up some tasty treats to support an animal rescue charity.

The team at CheshirePet in Holmes Chapel staged their own bake off, putting their baking skills to the test by creating numerous delicious cakes and raising a tasty £185 for Sandbach Animal Rescue Society.

CheshirePet sold their homemade brownies, scones, muffins and traybakes in the reception of the practice to customers, family and friends.

The money raised will go to a small charity that works all year around to rescue and rehome stray and unwanted cats and kittens in Sandbach and the surrounding areas.

The rescue cats all receive health checks from local vets to make sure they aren’t carrying any hidden health issues.

Once a cat has given a clean bill of health, the society then work around the clock to find the cat their forever home.

Lizzie Gorman, RVN veterinary nurse and cat advocate at CheshirePet, said: “The society work extremely hard to make sure rescue cats around our local area are healthy and have a loving home.

“Here at CheshirePet we love cats and cake and cake and we really appreciate the wonderful work they do, which is why we decided to raise money for Sandbach Animal Rescue Society.

“This really valuable charity does an incredible job looking after many cats around the local community, we were thrilled to be able to present them with £185 from our bake off. We already cannot wait for our next fundraising event.”
