Simmons goes purple

Simmons the Bakers will be supporting the Hospice of St Francis’ Grow Purple fundraising challenge at its 34 shops in October.

The Hertfordshire bakery will be baking purple-iced cupcakes throughout the month and giving a percentage of sales to help fund the hospice’s care.

The hospice, which provides free care for people living with life-limiting illnesses in West Herts and South Bucks, encourages locals to put on purple events in October, such as a purple-themed dress-down day, raffle, coffee morning or bake-off.

Simmons’ retail director Gill Ewing said: “We are delighted to support a local charity which directly helps patients from the areas where we have shops. I know from personal experience what amazing work the Hospice of St Francis does.”
