For the third year running, staff at insolvency firm Wilson Field swapped suits and ties for oven mitts and cake tins.
Grafting throughout the night, Friday 26th September saw the office canteen turned into a cave of confectionery. All of which was then tasted by our eager panel of cake testers.
Raising £179.57 for the worthwhile cause and we have no raised £600 cumulatively. Our staff were invited not only to take part in the bake off, but also participate in a casual dress day and join the ‘Wilson Field bake off committee’.
Congratulations to Aimee Carrack from our Company Voluntary Arrangement department, who following deliberation of the impartial bake off committee, was judged to be our resident ‘star baker’. A regular baker, Aimee who organised the event, impressed judges with her apple and oil cake. It was topped with maple syrup icing and it was a sell-out amongst the office.
Aimee is also representing Wilson Field in October at this years ‘Neurobake’. This is an event set up to raise money for local Neurology charity, Neurocare.
Running nationwide since 1991, the Macmillan coffee morning has raised over £113million for cancer support since its conception. Over £1million of that has been raised so far this year.
All of the money raised is used by the charity to fund support for those affected with cancer across the United Kingdom, in order to make sure no one faces cancer alone.
