The Big Spotacular – Baking for Children in Need
November is the time of year when Innovate and many schools team up to bake a difference in support of Children in Need, a charity that does fabulous work with disadvantaged children both outside and inside the United Kingdom. This year, with BBC televising the Children in Need programme on 18th November, the week-long fund raiser began on Monday 14th and was well represented and supported at many venues.
BAKED TO THE FUTURE
This year we asked our bakers to create a variety of fabulous and fun Spotacular cakes. The cakes were sold along with our usual range of bakery delights for 60 pence each. Last year we raised around £2,500 and this year, with our week long efforts, we managed to raise over £6,000. It means that we sold over 30 000 baked treats!
THE INNOVATE BUSINESS SUPPORT CENTRE BAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE
At the Innovate BSC we also decided to get in on the action and held our own bake sale, inviting people from other companies to sample some of our yummy treats.
