Carson McDowell’s staff bake-off for the NSPCC

01 March 2016


Carson McDowell’s recent bake-off raised £622.33 for NSPCC Northern Ireland.

A chief baker from each of the four floors in the office went head-to-head in a show-stopper challenge for the title of star baker. Gillian Greenfield’s chocolate heart and strawberry cake was selected as the winning entry by head judge, Marie McGuckin from NSPCC. The four cakes were then auctioned off to the highest bidders. Staff from across the firm also baked a range of treats for a bun sale at tea break.

Victoria O’Hara from the charity committee said: “The bake-off was a great success and we were really pleased that so many staff got involved to raise funds for this vital local charity. Thanks to everyone for the time and effort they put in to making this such a good event.”

Jo Watson, Head of Local Fundraising for NSPCC Northern Ireland said: “Everyone at the NSPCC says a big thank you to the talented bakers in Carson McDowell for raising much needed funds in support of local children. This event comes as we start to celebrate 30 years of NSPCC’s ChildLine service which can only be offered free to children because of donations just like this.”
