If there’s one thing we love more than the smell of ink, it’s got to be the prospect of eating cake – especially if it’s helping raise money for good causes.
Once again this year we took part in Cornwall Hospice Care’s Charity Cake Bake, where businesses and organisations across the County are encouraged to bake and sell sweet treats to raise money for the important work the charity do.
With it being May 4th, we decided to make it a Star Wars themed Cake Bake (May the fourth. Get it?) and challenge our team to bake cakes with a Star Wars theme.
Dozens of cakes were brought in by the team, with everything from “Chewy Gingerbread Chewbaccas”, to “Stormtrooper Cupcakes”, “Alec McGuinness cake” and even “Chewbacca Millionaire Shortbread”.
We welcomed visitors from the surrounding businesses at the Business Park, customers to the Printshop and of course our own team indulged throughout the day as well – helping us to raise £170, which was generously match-funded by SAPC directors Peter and Amanda Moody to bring the final amount to £340.
We even got a special mention on BBC Radio 2 by Steve Wright as part of his Serious Jockin’ feature…
Thank you to all involved – both our bakers and cake-eaters!
Cornwall Hospice Care are a charity very close to our hearts here at SAPC, and we were pleased to be able to help support the important service they provide – plus, any excuse to eat cake!
