On Thursday 21st November we held our 1st CRY Great Cake Bake at our Arup office in Fitzrovia, London. Several of my colleagues donated sweet treats including banana bread, Rocky road, zucchini bread and pear loaf to name a few.
We also received cake and cupcakes from Humming Bird Bakery which went down a treat amongst the teams.
Helen Lavery designed and baked “Rabbie Bear” and it got a lot of attention and many requests for photos which helped raise awareness for CRY as we asked everyone to tag the charity in our photos.
A fellow fundraiser for Million Makers (Arup’s own charity) gave us their contactless payment device which meant we got even more donations with nearly 50% being by card.
We were very sad to cut up Rabbie Bear but he tasted as good as he looked and we raised some more money the next day taking our final total to £700.
A huge thanks to all my friends for donating their baked goods and time. And thanks to Arup and the Humming Bird Bakery for supporting a cause very close to our hearts.
