On the 28th March, employees at Arrow’s head office in Shrewsbury took part in an “Eat Cake” event in order to raise money for local charity, Hope House.
Star bakers from the company came forward and made a wide variety of cakes which were available for staff to purchase throughout the day. From carrot cake to cupcakes, there was something for everyone. In total, £215 was raised with all proceeds going to Hope House / Ty Gobaith.

Following the success of the “Eat Cake” event, Sam Blackledge, Insight Director at Arrow County Supplies who helped organise the sale, comments: “It’s really important to give back to the community and especially to those in need, that’s why charities such as Hope House need to be supported for the services that they offer”.
