Budding bakers at Banbury-based Walraven are taking part in one of the tastiest ways to support Katharine House this autumn, by hosting a company bake off.
Walraven, a global family-owned company that produces and sells installation solutions for various industries, has signed up to the hospice’s Care for a Cuppa scheme, brought back this year by popular demand.
Care for a Cuppa asks for novice or seasoned bakers to brush up on their culinary skills and either host a fundraising coffee morning or cake sale, or like Walraven take on a more competitive bake-off challenge, all to raise money for people affected by life-limiting illnesses.
Sarah Young, Walraven HR, Training and Payroll Advisor, said: “Walraven Ltd has been a supporter of Katharine House for many years, organising several fundraising activities in the past such as Parachute Jumps, taking part in the hospice’s Moonlight Walks, and sponsoring their Christmas Cards.
“When I saw the Care for a Cuppa fundraiser, I knew it could be another way that we could help with all the vital fundraising that Katharine House do.”
Community Engagement Manager for Katharine House, Roseann Thompson, said: “Care for a Cuppa is perfect for bringing people together, either at school, at work on in the community. But it can also be a great way to have a bit of healthy (or unhealthy) competition.
“We’re so grateful to Walraven for taking part in our scheme and would love to hear from more likeminded organisations wanting to sign up to this mouthwatering money-maker!”
