Cloverdale bakery raises $1,200 for pedestrian killed in Surrey crash

Short & Sweet Bakery donating all proceeds from fundraiser to family of 21-year-old crash victim

A Cloverdale bakery raised more than $1,200 for the family of Emily Sanregret, the 21-year-old Surrey woman who was fatally struck by a car while walking in a crosswalk on her way to work three weeks ago.

Related: Surrey pedestrian killed had complained about feeling ‘invisible’ in crosswalk before

The incident happened at 7 a.m. on Friday, June 23, at the corner of 168th Street and 60th Avenue.

That corner is right outside of Short & Sweet Patisserie and Bakery, located at 16793 60 Ave.

“We didn’t know her personally, but many of our customers did,” said Tammi Hall, co-owner of the bakery. “We followed the story.”

Sanregret died in hospital six days after the crash, and the community has been raising money for funeral costs through a GoFundMe campaign, which raised $6,950 in five days.

“We heard that her mum was a single mum and we knew right away that we wanted to help,” said Hall.

Short & Sweet Patisserie and Bakery sold cookies for $1 each, with all proceeds going towards Sanregret’s family.

They sold 1,078 cookies, and took in $1,267 in donations. “The support has been awesome, it’s been so great,” said Hall.

Hall said that they saw many people come through the doors yesterday, including Sanregret’s family and friends.

Sanregret had worked as an early childhood educator, with children ages three to five. Her class visited the bakery last week so that they could purchase cookies, and so did the first responders who attended the scene of the crash.
