The Great Cair Charity Bake Off


This week saw the most anticipated event of the year, Bake Off…The Great Cair Bake Off.

The Cair team went head to head to win the coveted prize of Star Baker.Entries included sweet and savoury bakes but all were homemade.

The aim of the bake sale was to raise money for Contact the Elderly charity.

At Contact the Elderly they help lonely and isolated elderly people reconnect with their local community. Volunteers take older people to free Sunday afternoon tea parties, offering them a vital lifeline of friendship.

With this great cause in mind, staff made a variety of mouth-watering bakes including; pastry, biscuits, bread, cake, pies, and buns.

Whether these were technical, signature or showstopper, it was agreed that all were delicious.

However, special mention must go to some of our engineers that produced some great bakes including the below.

Showstoppers included Derek’s gory Brain Cake.

The Proof of the Pudding is in the Eating

After tasting everyone’s bakes, an anonymous vote took place and the winner revealed as production operator, Ewelina.

Which just goes to show our engineering team are great but our production team are even better in not only building product but baking too!

A massive thank you to everyone that took part!

We raised a fantastic £128.04 for the chosen charity, proceeds will go towards helping end loneliness for local elderly people.
