Money total rises along with the cakes

BAKERS at Chelmsford rose to the occasion and produced plenty of prizewinning cakes, raising more than £390 for Macmillan Cancer Support’s coffee morning. Amy Walker, who organised the event with fellow Flow Leader Jackie Flanagan, raised £390, more than double last year’s total. “Thanks to everyone who made cakes, tasted them and donated generously to such a good cause, I am very proud of everyone who was involved,” says Amy. “The cakes all looked amazing and everyone involved made such a huge effort. The money raised really does make a difference to many people.” Senior Operations Managers Marianne Bird and Claire Freeman admit picking out which were the best cakes was a real challenge, “I am totally in awe of all those who made such beautiful cakes. The judging was very difficult,” Marianne says. “We want to thank everyone who was involved for such an amazing cause.” Jackie Flanagan won first prize for her Parsnip Cake, runners up were Fraud Analyst Carolyn Burns and Fraud Prevention Officers Abbie Whitely and Georgia Leslie. Amy Walker received a special mention for her Rainbow Cake. Fraud Prevention Officer Rob Livermore took his winning bake to share with colleagues at a special picnic in memory of Martin Craddock, who died of cancer earlier this year. Winner of the Guess the Spots competition – Flow Leader Shelley Lamb – donated her prize money back into the charity pot.
