Higos Bake off raises funds for Children’s Hospice South WestTuesday 26th April 2016
We are delighted to have raised £250 for our chosen charity of the year Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).
The Great Higos Bake Off is now in its second year and takes place at the Higos Staff Annual Conference. The cakes are judged by a professional baker and sold to staff during the interval with the proceeds going to a charity chosen by the winner. This year the winner was a stem ginger and treacle tray bake with a fondant top and crystallised ginger, baked by Sharon Bird, Compliance Officer.
Sharon commented “I decided to donate the £250 from the bake off to Children’s Hospice South West because they are local to where I live and were very supportive when my two year old niece passed away from a genetic condition. I was elated when I learnt that Higos had chosen them as charity of the year.”
Louise Turner, Corporate Partnerships Fundraiser for CHSW commented “We would like to say a big thank you to Sharon and to Higos for raising more funds for us, this donation will go towards the running costs of the hospice and we are very grateful for the support we have received from Higos this year.”
