Fundraiser of the Month
The Rayware Group show off their baking skills in aid of Alder Hey as they are crowned October’s Fundraisers of the Month!
Autumn has well and truly arrived, and for millions of people up and down the country, that can mean only one thing… Bake Off is back!
One local business who have risen to the baking challenge are The Rayware Group, who, earlier this month, held an office wide bake-off challenge and sale, raising a wonderful £448 in the process, and securing them the title of October’s Fundraiser(s) of the Month!
Rayware decided to hold the fundraising event for Alder Hey on the nomination of the company’s HR Advisor, Vikki Roberts, whose youngest son has received expert care and support from the staff at Alder Hey.
Sarah Gerrard, Project Manager at Rayware, said: “On 10th October, Rayware employees came together to host a Bake Sale in aid of Alder Hey. There were lots of home baked and shop bought goodies on sale, and alongside this we held fun technical challenges where team members went head-to-head to recreate a unicorn cupcake from fondant icing or to pipe buttercream icing into the shape of a pumpkin!
There was also a managers challenge where those brave enough raced each other to transfer a selection of sweets to a paper bag using chopsticks. We can confirm that this was more difficult than it sounds especially when it came to picking up Skittles with the chopsticks! The event was a success, and we are proud to say that we raised just over £440.”
We have to say, that all certainly sounds like fun! Thank you so much to everyone at The Rayware Group who baked, bought or ate some tasty baked goods in aid of Alder Hey, your generosity will make such a difference to the patients and families at our hospital. You are such well-deserved Fundraisers of the Month!
If you or your business would like to follow Rayware’s lead and cook up some tasty treats to support our charity, then there is no better time to do it! Bake sales are a brilliant way to fundraise, as you can get creative, have some healthy competition and gather all your friends, family and colleagues, whilst also raising vital funds in the process. It’s a win-win!
