H&H Charity Events Roundup

31st July 2018

Fabulous Danish Pastries by Roger Blake (Group Services) & Swiss Roll by Tracey Mitchinson (Farmstock)

During 2018 H&H are holding a number of charity events which all staff have been invited to participate in.  We will be raising funds for our two 2018 nominated charities which are The British Heart Foundation and RABI (Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution).

On Friday 20 July we held the H&H 2018 Farmhouse Bake Off.   Staff were invited to enter one of more of the following categories – cake / traybake / savoury pastry.  Prizes were on offer for H&H Bake Off Champion, Runner Up and Best Rookie Baker.

A number of staff from around the Group took part and we had a myriad of entries ranging from classic sponges to danish pastries.  A great day was had by all and we raised £350 for our chosen charities.  Lynn Johnston from Borderway Cafe took the prize of Bake Off Champion with her chocolate sponge, Julie Whitaker from Michael CL Hodgson was runner up with her ginger cake and Lee Sparrow from H&H Insurance Bakers was our Rookie Baker with his chocolate sponge.

We will be holding a Festive Bake Off on Thursday 13 December.
