Cake bake for local children's hospice

06/07/2012
A series of charitable fundraising initiatives have started to take off at London City Airport in aid of the airport’s chosen charity Richard House Children’s Hospice, Beckton.  
Airport volunteers spent their Sunday baking cakes and biscuits in preparation for a charity cake sale for London City Airport staff last week. The cakes were made available by the Community Team to all staff across the airport to purchase for £1, with all proceeds going to the airport’s chosen charity of 15 years.
 
Janette Markwell, a local resident and a volunteer at The Royal Docks Learning and Activity Centre in North Woolwich also contributed and baked a generous 500 cookies for the sale. 
 
Regular fundraising collections with passengers are also taking place within the airport with the help of Richard House Hospice Volunteers and more thrill seeking activities are planned to take place over the course of the year, including a charity cycle ride and a hair-raising sky dive!
 

Editors note

London City Airport (LCY) is the only airport situated in London itself, just two miles from the site of the 2012 Olympic Games, three miles from Canary Wharf, seven miles from the City and 10 miles from London’s West End – linked to all via the LCY Docklands Light Railway station. Welcoming over 3 million passengers in 2011, LCY is not only uniquely convenient, but offers a uniquely rapid transit, through check-in and security to the departure lounge and gate, of around 20 minutes. 10 airlines fly out of LCY, serving over 40 destinations – the latest additions for 2012 are Basel, Mahon, Angers, Quimper, Venice and Aberdeen. LCY is on Twitter (@londoncityairport) and further information about flights, destinations and airport services can be found at www.londoncityairport.com.
