A Christmas doughnut created by a student from Northampton Saints Foundation has raised £333.25 whilst on sale, in December, at Butterwick Bakery to help raise money for the Foundation.
The Big Bauble - a doughnut with a pink glaze, festive red sauce and Christmas sprinkles - was designed by Callum who joined the Foundation’s Aspire programme, in partnership with Northampton College, in September.
As part of the collaboration, Northampton Saints Foundation ambassadors and Saints teammates Lewis Ludlam and James Grayson, joined Callum at the Northampton store to see the festive treat on display and join the Butterwick team in serving it to customers.
Callum said: “I spent a long time looking at Christmas designs and came up with the bauble because I thought it was very Christmassy and features Northampton Saints Foundation colours. I’m really pleased with how it has come out.”
Store manager, Annaliese Brown, said the team at Butterwick Bakery was delighted to be able to support Northampton Saints Foundation, a cause close to their hearts.
She said: “We like to do everything we can to support our local community and Northampton Saints Foundation do incredible work to support young people. The doughnut is incredible, and we look forward to selling as many as we can to raise money for the foundation.”
Catherine Deans, Managing Director of Northampton Saints Foundation added “Some of the young people we work with are among the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people in our community. Times are hard for everybody, but we want to create some positivity and give them every opportunity we can to build positive futures for themselves. We would like to thank Butterwick for working with the Foundation and to the public for their support. The money raised helps the Foundation with our aim to ensure we are giving every person the chance for a positive future”.
