Ferry nice cakes for sale on Ryde Pier – in aid of Stand Up to Cancer

Wightlink’s Julie Rousset and Zoe Lewis-Marlton get ready for Saturday’s Bake-Off on Ryde Pier

There will be cakes galore on Ryde Pier on Easter Saturday (20 April) as big-hearted Wightlink staff Zoe Lewis-Marlton and Julie Rousset take part in The Great Stand Up to Cancer Bake-Off. Cakes will be on sale from 08:00-13:00 (or until supplies last).

Barista Zoe hopes customers will be hungry: “I was inspired to set up our stall on the Pier to support friends and family affected by cancer. Everyone knows someone who has had the disease so we are doing our bit to raise money for research. Please come and see us at the ‘wet end’ of the Pier and buy a cake or two.”

Wightlink staff have been busy baking to support their colleagues. There will also be cakes from the ferry company’s partners Calbourne Classics, Medina Foodservice and Grace’s Bakery along with a ‘sweetstake’ draw for an Easter surprise from the Frostbite Bakery in Shanklin.

There will be an Easter Egg hunt on the terminal for the little ones and a children’s colouring-in station.

“We are pleased to support Zoe and Julie raise money for this very worthwhile cause and hope everyone will be generous,” says Wightlink’s Head of Retail Simon Lewis.
