The benefits of cake baking were seen in the Jones Harris office recently, as our expert cooks rustled up some tasty treats for a great cause.
No doubt many of you will have taken part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, hosted each year by Macmillan Cancer Support. After all, cake is one of life’s great pleasures and what a fabulous excuse!
The Benefits of Cake Baking
Yvonne and Emily, the administration team based in reception, organise an event each year. In 2021 the office raised an impressive £197.64.
It’s not just about eating cake – the fundraising pack includes games to play, which makes the fundraising go with a swing. And of course the money raised enables Macmillan to provide emotional, financial, medical and practical support to people affected by cancer.
Since it started way back in 1991, the event has raised over £290 million for Macmillan. That says a lot about how much we all enjoy cake!
The fun doesn’t stop at eating cakes, as each year one of the chefs is awarded with the Star Baker certificate.
Pam Maddock is Tax Technical Manager. Not only is she is an exceptionally knowledgeable and talented tax specialist, she’s also an incredible cook.
This year she was awarded ‘Star Baker’ – for the second year running!
