Connexional Team ‘Bake Off’ raises money for charity
Keen bakers of the Connexional Team took part in a special 'Bake Off' competition on Tuesday 5 April to raise money for the World Mission Fund and Mission in Britain Fund.
Over a dozen onlookers gathered to witness the competition, as a panel of judges tasted the culinary treats.
The four categories of the competition were: Biscuits, Sponges, Anything fruit and Anything chocolate. Several entries were assessed, with the winners including: George Luke's 'Double Chocolate Cookies' and 'Lemon Drizzle Cake', Naomi Oates' 'Orb and Cross Raspberry Tart', and Karin Farnsworth's 'Chocolate Brownies'.
Over £60 for the two charities was raised as tasters were encouraged to donate for a slice.
Sanya Strachan, organiser of the event, said: "The idea came really as just a bit of a joke in the office since we've got so many wonderful bakers! But the more we joked, the more people wanted to get involved.
"It was a great teatime break that brought people from across the different parts of the Team together for food, laughter and fun."
