The social committee at the Diocesan office held a Great Cake Bake for CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) – a charity which aims to prevent young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening, research, and supporting affected families.
The charity was selected by Marie Lipman, the Senior Business and Finance Officer for the Diocesan Multi-Academy Trust, in memory of her son, George who passed earlier this year, aged just 22. Marie says “George touched the hearts of many, many people, and his memory will continue to live on through the countless lives he affected. We have set up a memorial fund to help CRY raise awareness of young sudden cardiac death”.
The Great Cake Bake was held over lunchtime on Wednesday 29 November and an amazing assortment of cakes and savories were made by staff including Bishop Mike’s Reindeer Chocolate buns. The sale of cakes raised £314 including £50 online donations.
The charity has since been selected by staff as the diocesan charity of the year for 2024 and events are being planned by the social committee to raise more funds for the charity!
