A new furniture store in Romford celebrated its grand opening by presenting a two-foot cake to representatives of a local charity.
Oak Furniture Land commissioned the impressive cake, made in the shape of popular children’s TV character Zippy, to support the Rainbow Trust Harold Wood’s One Million campaign, which aims to help the store raise a million pounds by Christmas.
Pauline Obee, Patron for the Harold Wood Charity took centre stage at the opening on Saturday, when she was presented with the cake by Erica Thompson, store manager, and Mayor of Havering Cllr Linda Van den Hende.
Ms Obee said: “A cake replica of Zippy is a wonderful gesture to support and highlight our One Million Campaign.
“The money raised will help support families caring for a child with a terminal or life-threatening illness.
“We’ll be selling slices of the Zippy cake in the shop.”
