Classic Bake Off raises funds for cancer charity

A holiday letting agency has hosted a Great British Bake Off-style event for budding bakers in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Staff from Classic Cottages in Helston organised the event as part of the cancer charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on September 27.

Employees were invited to enter a home-baked cake into the competition and raised £600 for the charity.

Organiser Katie Chown, a cancer patient who only recently returned to work following treatment, said: “I wanted to come back to work with a celebratory bang so a day of cake seemed like a good motivation. Plus, it’s a great distraction from current treatment. I’m in awe of the efforts everyone has gone to with their baking, thanks to all involved.”

Staff member Stef Parr provided the icing on the cake by seeing off competition to win the Best Cake award, with a three-tiered pistachio and lime cake baked in memory of her father who was supported by Macmillan last year.
