The Great Audley Bake Off
On Thursday 31st January, Audley Villages up and down the country, along with the team at Audley Group's central Egham office, held The Great Audley Bake Off 2019 to raise vital funds for The Dove Ward, Great Western Hospital, Swindon.
Audley staff working in care, maintenance, sales, marketing, hospitality, finance and HR baked up a storm, with many trying to incorporate the colour orange into their delicious creations to represent Leukaemia awareness.
The drive behind The Great Audley Bake off and our upcoming Night Trek, is to support the Brighter Futures Charity in raising funds, who are in turn supporting our friend and colleague - Audley Care Director, Joanna Lander - who is currently undergoing treatment in The Dove Ward for Leukaemia.
Together, the company raised approximately £1,500. Joanna has been overwhelmed by the support and continues to follow what her dedicated care team and Audley colleagues have been up to.
Owners, colleagues and restaurant guests made the most of the taste-testing as they voted for the best looking and best tasting cake in each location.
Congratulations to the winners of the best looking and best tasting cake, respectively:
Egham Office: Julie Wells and Liz Hennequin
