Staff from Gascoigne Halman recently turned bakers for the day in order to raise as much money as possible for their three charities of the year, East Cheshire Hospice, St Ann’s Hospice and St Rocco’s Hospice and local charity, Blythe House Hospice. The company wide Bakethon, which involved 17 of Gascoigne Halman’s offices, brought in a staggering total of £3340.55.
The Bakethon saw staff baking cakes, cookies and muffins and selling them to prospective home buyers and sellers, in fact anyone passing by their offices.
Gascoigne Halman’s first ever Bakethon took place two years ago and raised over £2,000 for The Christie and everyone is delighted that this year’s event managed to raise even more money for local hospices.
Commenting on the Bakethon, John Halman said, “Once again everyone at Gascoigne Halman has made such a fantastic effort by baking a delicious selection of home-made treats, even those who couldn’t bake got stuck in! We’ve raised a phenomenal amount and I know that the teams at all of the local hospices are thrilled with our efforts.”
The Bakethon is part of a year long fundraising effort by the staff at Gascoigne Halman to support St Ann’s Hospice, East Cheshire Hospice and St Rocco’s Hospice. All three hospices are based locally and they help care and support local individuals and their families who are affected by cancer and other life limiting illnesses.
