Doncaster Rovers mascot replicated in cake for Eve Murton Dreams Trust charity
Oak Furnitureland, the UK’s largest retailer of solid hardwood furniture, donated a spectacular cake replica of Donny, Doncaster Rovers FC’s mascot, to local charity Eve Merton Dreams Trust at the official opening of its first store in Doncaster.
The store was officially opened on May 25 by the Mayor of Doncaster, Councillor Linda Curran who joined the new store team in presenting the cake to the charity.
Oak Furnitureland commissioned the amazing confectionery creation to show support for the work the Eve Merton Dreams Trust does in the community and to donate to the Doncaster Rovers vs Leeds United Legends charity fundraising football match.
Located at the Danum Retail Park the new 15,041 sq ft showroom features over 20 ranges including the new Hove, Oslo and Brindle ranges, the painted ranges, Shay, and St Ives, as well as the natural oak ranges Romsey and Wiltshire. The showroom also features a large range of sofas and armchairs all with 100 per cent hardwood frames and strong high-grade steel serpentine spring bases for support and durability.
