The cake, which was designed and made by 3D Cakes of Edinburgh, was raffled at the new department’s recent launch event, where VIPs and House of Fraser store-card holders got to meet the in-store team, and peruse its new-look furniture galleries and improved product ranges.
The fundraising activity on the day raised £500 for St Columba’s Hospice which will go directly towards this year’s Light Up A Life Appeal, which raises funds to provide extra special care and support to patients and families over the festive period.
Elaine Ray, business development directorat House of Fraser Made to Order stated: “The new department makes for a new, bigger and better furniture and flooring offer for people in Edinburgh, offering more choice, knowledge and expertise. We have added new ranges, branded furniture galleries and totally re-vamped the area for a better shopping environment for our customers.
“As part of our launch we really wanted to make a contribution to the local community in Edinburgh and what better way than helping people remember a loved one this Christmas. St Columba’s Hospice does amazing work in the city and we’re pleased to have been able to raise much needed funds to help with their Light Up A Life appeal.”
