Belgrade Bake Off raises over £1,000 for MacMillan
Every year, staff of the Belgrade Theatre gather at the set building workshops on Red Lane for their annual coffee morning in support of MacMillan Cancer Support. This year was no exception and raised a whopping £1,146.67 for the charity.
Staff members were invited to take part in a Great British Bake Off style baking competition, judged by a member of the Catering team, and a People’s Choice award where staff voted for their favourite bakes.
There were no soggy bottoms in sight as staff delivered a delicious array of cakes, but in the end it was a chocolate raspberry cake that stole the show and took the People’s Choice Award, baked by Communications Assistant, Sairah Rehman. Chocolate and raspberries proved a popular combination when our Bake Off judge announced Jean Wheldon, P.A. to the Chief Executive, as the second winner.
The Coffee Morning also included a raffle, tombola and auction giving staff the chance to win prizes and raise even more money for MacMillan! Visit the MacMillan website to find out how you can host your own Coffee Morning to raise money.
