If you follow Virgin Wines on Facebook or Twitter, you will know we are currently doing our own version of the Great British Bake-Off. This means our waistlines will be expanding over the course of the next two months, however as it’s all for charity, we’re willing to make that sacrifice.
Earlier this year we nominated MIND as our charity of the year. Mind provides help and support directly to those who need it the most. They also take part in vital campaigns to ensure that anyone experiencing a mental health problem has access to excellent care services, where everyone is treated fairly, positively and with respect.
So we decided to kick start our fundraising effort with a little baked goodness. 14 members of staff agreed to get their chef hats on and cook up a storm in aid of Mind, and so far it could not be going any better. We are only just through week three of 14 and we have already raised £150 of our £500 target. 100% of the proceeds go directly to charity.
I wanted to show off a few bakes we’ve had so far and we’ll continue to promote the bake-off on our social media channels. So make sure you’re following us on TWITTER, have liked us on FACEBOOK and follow us on INSTAGRAM.
