Swedish baker Almondy has raised £2,000 for the Katie Piper Foundation, following a week-long awareness campaign.

The bakery donated £3 to the charity for every follow and retweet it received on its Twitter account. It has also committed to continue to support the burns and scars support charity.

Andrew Ely, managing director, Almondy, said: “Katie Piper is a truly inspirational person and the Foundation carries out vital work supporting those living with burns and scars. We’re proud to have the Foundation as our corporate charity and offer our support to such a worthy cause – we’re looking forward to working with them to raise further funds.”

Carol Borwick, director of fundraising and operations at The Katie Piper Foundation said: “We’re thrilled to have had Almondy’s support via its successful Twitter campaign, which has helped to build awareness for all that we do to support those with burns and scars and raised a significant sum as well. We shall look forward to building on this success in the future”.

The charity offers advice and workshops to build up confidence for burns victims.
