Payment card processor holds Bake Off for MacMillan Cancer Support

A Preston retail services company staged its own Bake Off and raised £200 for a cancer charity.

 

Staff at Suresite donned aprons and rolled up their sleeves in support of managing director Nick Healy, who recently lost his mother to cancer.

 

The fundraiser was held as a trailblazer for the MacMillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning, which takes place on Friday 28 September.

 

Suresite chairman Geoff Oldham, served as the judge, said: "We have run a charity Bake Off for the last three years as we're all big fans of the programme - and of course of cake!

 

"But this year we decided to dedicate the event to our director Nick's mother and I think the personal connection made everyone pull together that little bit more.

"We held the event a few days before the official MacMillan coffee morning, so our homeworkers - who come into the office every Tuesday - could get involved."

 

Accounts assistant Sharon Hegarty was named the office's star baker. Her two layer chocolate cake encircled by a ring of chocolate hazelnut pirouette wafers beat off competition including a lemon drizzle, a carrot cake, a Toblerone cheesecake and a plate of chocolate brownies.

 

Sharon, who cites 2015 Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain as her all time favourite contestant, said: "I got a tad over excited when he announced my cake as the winner, almost cried, and quite frankly thoroughly made a bit of a fool of myself! All in all, I was thrilled."

 

She admitted: "I'm not actually much of a cake fan at all. I'm more into savoury food. Given the choice, I'd opt for a pasty any day".

 

Suresite is based at Millenium City Park and provides a number of services for retailers, including payment card processing.
