Staff and students at Bradford College got the taste for fundraising by getting involved in Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day.
Organised by the College’s Diversity Plus team the event saw sweet treats sold up to raise money for the charity that helps fund pioneering research, crucial support services and care.
In total, more than £150 was raised.

Lenka Kaur, Inclusion and Diversity Co-ordinator at Bradford College, said: “Bradford College is proud to once again support Alzheimer`s Society Cupcake Day. Almost everyone knows somebody affected by dementia. By hosting Cupcake Day, we are helping to fight against the UK’s biggest killer. Staff and students had the chance to treat themselves whilst supporting an important cause.
“Thanks have to go to Regal Foods, Cycle re-Cycle and The Stables at Oddy Lock for their generous donations and to everyone else who provided cakes or bought and enjoyed one. The money raised is going to a great charity.”
In the average time that it takes to bake a batch of cakes, six people in the UK will develop dementia. It is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales, overtaking both cancer and heart disease.
