Here at Brand Recruitment we wanted to get into the baking spirit as ‘The Great British Bake Off’ came back onto our television screens. Some of the team are avid followers of the hit TV show which has been running since 2010 with judges including cookery writer Mary Berry.
On Friday 22nd August, we held a traditional bake off in the office where the only rule was to bake to the best of your ability. We all brought in a wide range of delicious treats including sweet and savoury cakes and biscuits. After tasting all of the baked goods, we cast our votes and crowned our Brand Bake Off Winner, which was our colleague Emma who is part of our Candidate Engagement Team. She made us her delicious Rocky Road, which many of us requested the recipe for after tasting it! In second place was one of our consultants Aimee, who made a lovely Lemon Drizzle cake, this was her first ever time baking a cake so she was very pleased to place second. Then in a very close third tie was Lauren, Rachel and Hannah with their tasty treats including a raspberry and white chocolate traybake, cherry and chocolate cupcakes, liquorice cupcakes and prosciutto and parmesan muffins.
Whilst we of course enjoyed feasting on the tasty treats, we really wanted the donations that we raised during the bake off to go to a good cause; the funds went towards money raised by our two colleagues, Claire and Hannah, who are doing a charity abseil in October at the Guild Hall in Cambridge for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. We are all excited for our brave colleagues to complete this challenge and our Managing Directors very kindly offered to match any donations that were made for the charity. We all raised a whopping £100 doing our Brand Bake Off which was then doubled to £200!
EACH is a wonderful charity that supports families and cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. They provide care and support wherever the family wishes – in families’ own homes, in the community or at one of their hospices in Ipswich, Milton and Quidenham. Their care teams help children and their families with the emotional and physical challenges they face, helping them to make the most of life. Everyone at Brand Recruitment was pleased to donate to this amazing charity. If you would like to get involved and show your support, the East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices website has more information on the incredible work that they do.
