The Beverley Holidays Team were put through their baking paces in a charity cake-off which raised £378.60 for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of the charity’s annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Receptionists, entertainers and other members of the holiday park’s charitable team swapped their uniforms for aprons as they battled it out in the kitchen for the coveted title of Beverley’s Star Baker.
Their delicious cake-off creations were served up to a judging panel consisting of local Macmillan volunteer Fay Timblin, Simon Waugh from White Rock Festival Of Learning and Beverley Entertainer Aaron Garner.
The scrumptious spread of home-made cakes were quickly devoured by hungry Coffee Morning attendees who dug deep in their pockets to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event also saw students from White Rock Primary School take part in a cupcake decorating session in the company of Beverley Holidays’ very own mascot Beverley Bear.
Group Leader of Macmillan’s Torbay Fundraising Group David Shephard said “Myself and Fay were blown away by the cake-off event at Beverley Holidays – it was a great success and were thrilled to be involved.”
Marketing Director Claire Jeavons said: “We are thrilled to have raised £378.60 for Macmillan Cancer Support and would like to say a huge thank you to all those who joined us for another successful coffee morning and donated to this very worthy cause.
“And there’s an equally big well done to the Beverley Holidays Team on their brilliant cake-off entries. Thankfully there wasn’t a soggy bottom in sight and the cakes proved a real hit with our judges and event goers alike.”
Set in the heart of the English Riviera, Beverley Holidays is a family run group of holiday parks in Devon offering boutique holiday caravans, luxury lodges, camping and touring, coupled with a wealth of facilities.
