Team members at THE PLANNING SHOP’S London office held a ‘Charity Bake Off’ today, in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Employees were set a challenge to bake a cake and bring it to the office, where it would be judged by three colleagues on the basis of look, taste and creativity.
Never ones to shy away from a challenge, team members readily accepted and arrived at work armed with a bounty of cakes! Everything from cup cakes, to Victoria Sponges, scones to strawberry layer cakes, and a traditional Russian cake (the winning entry).
Money was raised through a £3 entry fee for each cake, as well as a bake sale amongst colleagues in the office. And when we couldn’t eat another bite, the remaining cake was sold in the main reception of our building, which we share with other organisations.
It has been a fun day, where we’ve probably eaten far too much. But we’re pleased to report we have managed to raise a huge £380 for Cancer Research UK! A great achievement!
