Maison Blanc Patisserie OxfordFundraising Manager Carole Hefferman said: “We are delighted that Maison Blanc has chosen to support us. With over 900 people in the UK being diagnosed with cancer every day all monies raised are vital in ensuring that we can continue to deliver and expand the range of services we offer to people affected by cancer and their families.” About Maison Blanc: Maison Blanc is the authentic French Boulangerie and Pâtisserie created in Oxford in 1981, it was the first authentic pâtisserie and bakery in England, setting the standard for subsequent pâtisseries.
