Autumn is officially upon us, but with September also comes Childhood Cancer Awareness Month; and in true FR spirit it seemed only appropriate to choose a children’s cancer charity as our charity of the month and do some ‘fun’ raising ourselves…
After last month’s skydive, we thought we deserved a little treat and what better treat than a slice (or two) of cake?! Especially when it’s all in aid of this month’s charity CLIC Sargent chosen by our Design & IT Manager, Nick Brookner.
‘Over the years, I’ve known and lost family and friends to cancer, and to find a charity that helps with all aspects of this horrible disease is extremely special’. CLIC Sargent offers cancer support for children, young people and their families; be it emotional, practical or financial support, CLIC Sargent will be there to help.
So, as an office we were inspired by not only CLIC Sargent’s amazing mission, but also the start of the Great British Bake Off (which ties in nicely with that little treat we mentioned earlier)! So this month, FR Events have decided to have a bake off of our own with all the funds raised going to CLIC Sargent. Each team member has been tasked with creating a masterpiece, with the rest of the team scoring them out of 5 in the following categories: originality, presentation, and most importantly, success of the bake! The total score equates how much is donated to CLIC Sargent . We’re nearly half way through September and already 3 cakes down, with some great contenders and with 3 weeks’ worth of cake left, who knows who The Great FR Bake Off champion will be!
Be inspired by the #powerofcake this month and do some baking inspired fundraising of your own!
