Keele students have raised more than £250 for disaster relief in Haiti with a fundraising cake sale in the University chapel.

Congregation members contributed a variety of delicious homemade cakes and cookies for the event, which students then helped to sell throughout the day.

Becky Wardell, project leader of Keele’s volunteering programme VE@Keele, said: “Our  thanks go to all those people who helped by contributing their time and culinary skills, and to those who donated to the event.”

The next cake sale fundraiser for Haiti is in Keele Chapel Café today (Tuesday, February 9) from 11am to 4pm.  All money raised will be given to Christian Aid, which falls under the umbrella of the Disaster Emergency Committee already working in Haiti.
