​A week or so ago we sadly bid farewell to Pete, our fantastic Community and Events consultant here at Charity People. Pete, and his abundance of energy, will definitely be missed around the office.

In honour of Pete leaving, we hosted a cake bake sale raising money for HOPE not hate, chosen by Pete himself. HOPE not hate is an amazing anti-racism and discrimination charity that focuses on building communities and celebrating shared identities by developing community action and engagement plans.

We raised a total of £152 for this wonderful organisation. In Pete’s own words, “Whilst comparatively little when compared with the vast cost of Brexit and the tragic rise in hate crime and assault on liberalism since the referendum, it was beautiful to see everyone so positive and driven to make even the smallest of differences.”

We wanted to say a massive thank you for all of the generous donations from our workspace colleagues and all of the effort that our Charity People bakers went to with their fabulous cakes.
