The team at Specsavers in Sutton celebrated a year of supporting their chosen local charity with a festive bake-off, showing off their hidden skill set.
There were 20 delicious entries overall for the three categories – sweet, savoury and showstopper. Bakes ranged from creative cupcakes to Christmas cakes, biscuits, tarts and savoury snacks, with not a soggy bottom in sight. Festive fundraising throughout December has already raised more than £300.
At the judging ceremony last week, staff were joined by special guest, John Eastwood Hospice Trust manager, Diane Humphries. She helped to mark the entries and congratulated the winners.
A word from the store director
Specsavers store director, Nigel Davidson, said: ’The bake-off was a great way to celebrate our year of fundraising with Diane. It was wonderful to showcase the team’s talent and the variety of bakes was truly impressive.
‘The John Eastwood Hospice is such an excellent local cause, we’ve all felt inspired by the work they do and it’s an honour to fundraise on their behalf. We’ve decided to continue our support for the charity throughout 2019.’
