Last Week’s Dough Raisers
The week commencing 19th October saw more community projects and Corporate Partners get their bake on to help to raise a slice of our £10,000 Caketober target.
New Charter Group kicked off the Caketober week with some spooky treats baked by colleagues, which looked brilliant, as can be seen below:

Thursday saw Print My Soul and Jam PR put together some delicious cakes. Print My Soul’s staff took to baking like ducks to water with their cupcakes selling especially well. We can see why, they look delicious!
Jam PR also took part on Thursday inviting in local businesses to taste their staff’s delicious home made cakes.
On Friday 23rd we had four businesses taking part hoping to be in with a chance of winning the exciting Caketober competitions. Netsource’s team raised £231, which isn’t surprising when you look at how many cakes they baked and how lovely they looked too! They also had a donation from the delicious Patisserie Valerie to go toward their fundraising efforts.
Stockport Accountants, Bennett Verby, who also took part on Friday have put in a great effort for the best dressed cake. The golden rolling pin could be held by Jake at this rate! Very impressive effort

David Luke Clothing hosted their own judging panel for their Caketober efforts raising £100 to go into the Caketober pot, helping local people across Greater Manchester.
Manchester based Recruitment company, The Hill Group Limited raised over £300 baking a huge variety of cakes, including gluten free! They had a bake sale for the whole of the Towers Business Park in Didsbury and raised some serious dough. They even got their own Caketober t-shirts made up.
Also getting a slice of the action on Friday was I Will If You Will in Bury. I Will If You Will encourages women and girls in Bury to get more active. They hosted a sale at Castle Leisure Centre and raised £140

Last but certainly not least, Caketober partners theEword hosted their second bake sale of Caketober. We definitely think they may be the best dressed company of Caketober so far! Amazing effort, guys!
As well as this, the team hosted a “Cake Olympics”. Staff took part in a cake throwing competition with Alex Coe coming out on top!
