To celebrate the final of the BBC’s world-wide scrumptious hit, the Great British Bake Off, talented and competitive cooks at The Travel Visa Company, based in Crewe, whipped up a mouth-watering array of treats all in aid of charity.
Staff at the rapidly-expanding and award-winning international visa specialists, based at Crewe Hall, put their culinary skills to the test on Friday and the result was a delectable array of cakes, pastries and cookies with every participating member of staff donating to the Breast Cancer Campaign charity.
With monies still being counted, the tasty celebration certainly went down a treat with the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year’s team of 14 people, who have been inspired by the overwhelming success of the BBC’s Great British Bake Off programme, which concluded last night (Tuesday).
The winner of the company’s fierce Bake Off competition was Worldwide Visa Specialist Vicky Wallace who produced a mouth-watering Bakewell Tart.
Karen Taylor, Co-Founder of The Travel Visa Company, commented: “The Great British Bake Off has been a huge hit in our office and a talking point every Wednesday morning so what better way to mark the end of the series than by holding our own tasty contest.
“We honestly didn’t know we had so many talented bakers in the office but we’ve been amazed by the wonderful food we’ve been digging into. No one’s gone hungry, that’s for sure, and now we know they can cook we’ll be expecting a few treats more often!
“We’re delighted to say that all the money raised from this contest, and throughout October, will be donated to the Breast Cancer Campaign charity.”
