Charitable Donations

Waterfields Bakers are a family business who are very proud to be associated with the communities around the 47 shops that we have in the North West.

Waterfields are pleased to support local hospices through the sale of our carrier bags and during a full calendar year the £13,000 that will be raised will be divided thus.

Half the money will be divided between the following

· Willowbrook Hospice

· Zoe's Place Baby Hospice

· Halton Haven Hospice

· Wigan and Leigh Hospice

· Claire House Children's Hospice

· St Rocco's Hospice and Queens Court Hospice.

The other half will go to Macmillan nurses who play an inspirational role in both the hospices and the community.

Waterfields also have a number of shops that work with local charities that distribute food that is left at the end of the working day. If you work with a similar organisation we would be pleased to hear from you.

At a more local level, Waterfields continues to offer raffle prizes in support of deserving causes. If you are having a fundraiser for a deserving cause, please contact Mr Richard Waterfield, Chairman of Waterfields ( and consideration will be given to all requests. We cannot guarantee to support everyone but will reply to all.

2015 Summary

In 2015, we raised in excess of £6000 for Macmillan Cancer support and over £7000 for Children in need, thanks to the generosity of our customers and the inventiveness of our staff through raffles, tombola's and the sale of cupcakes throughout the shops.

Waterfields supported schools and organisations with raffle prizes and during 2015, we donated over £1500 in products to help with their own fund raising.

Dear Richard, I am writing to say a huge thank you for your kindness and support regarding the generous donation of one hundred beautiful, specially designed cupcakes you so very kindly donated for the buffet for the Charity Fun Day. In addition a massive thank you for organising and arranging for the special Breast Cancer Design for each and every cake, I couldn’t believe it when I collected them I was really touched at how kind and thoughtful it was of you, it was greatly appreciated and the lovely cakes were enjoyed by all!
