Cupcakes were just the prescription when they went on sale in a number of pharmacies to raise money for charity.
A cake sale held in four different branches of Manor Pharmacy last Thursday (16) raised £300 for people affected by dementia as part of the Alzheimer’s Society Cupcake Day.
Holly Martin, 18, who works in the Wheathampstead Pharmacy, organised the event for her branch and baked 100 cup cakes with her aunt, Anita Tring.
Their shop raised £100 and to raise additional funds, they also offered a prize to the person who could guess how many sprinkles were on a piece of paper.
Holly, who is the youngest member of staff in the branch, said: “It went really well and we had lots of customers coming in.
“I went down to the Mead Hall to gather patients with Alzheimer’s to sell some cakes and I managed to raise £30 there.
“I just want to thank everyone that supported us.”
