10 teams from across M&S Finance’s Head Office in Paddington battled it out to be crowned the “Bake Off” winners! On Tuesday 13 May, eager bakers from across the entire business brought in an array of cakes, pastries, pies and buns and raised over £2,000 for the Hospice! Each team was judged on the best tasting cake, the most beautiful display, the most ethical cake and value for money.
Two lucky staff from the Hospice were asked to be the judges and enjoyed feasting on chocolate brownies, macaroons and a huge cake iced with the Hospice logo!
Staff came up with such amazing cake designs including an allotment, a summer garden party and tennis ball. One clever team had a “virtual cake” for those staff on a diet who still wanted to donate to the Hospice. The overall winner was an incredible Beetroot Cake which won over the judges.
Tracey Richardson from M&S said: “This is the third time we have done this type of charity event and it is the best yet. It is a great way to bring members of teams together and all for a good cause.”
To date the team have raised over £3,500 for the Hospice, donated lots of pairs of Pyjamas for patients and provided all our Easter Eggs for the Easter Fayre. We are grateful for their continued support.
