Sheen Stickland held a Bake Off event at the Alton office on Thursday 29th October 2016 to raise funds for Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
Twelve members of staff put on their baking hats and made some yummy goodies including sausage rolls, mini cheese scones, a blueberry and lemon loaf and a coffee and walnut cake! Each baker donated £1 to enter and each person who wanted to taste the goodies and judge their favourite had to donate £2.
The winning bake was the sausage rolls, made by Jane Kershaw from the Finance Admin department. Everyone agreed that they were delicious! In total we managed to raise over £60 which will go to a great charity, helping those with Crohn’s and Colitis.
Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease, affecting more than 300,000 people in the UK. For more than 30 years, Crohn’s & Colitis UK have been leading the drive to increase knowledge of the causes and best treatments of Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. Research they’ve funded has led to vital discoveries about the conditions – and continues to do so.
