Napthens recent Bake Sale was a resounding success after raising almost £500 for good causes, thanks to the kind-hearted (and hungry) colleagues across the six regional offices.
With approximately 60 cakes baked, the event spread over three days, also reflected the importance of Black History Month (BHM).
A number of Jamaican Ginger Cakes and Coconut Cakes were delivered, and then sold in the offices, with the £474.50 generated from all the sales going to the Napthens Foundation.
Kelly Harris, associate solicitor at Napthens, who helped organise the fundraising event, said: “I have to thank everyone who helped make this fundraising and awareness event the success it was.
“From the people who baked some extraordinary cakes, to those who set up the sales in each office and everyone who came along and bought a slice or two, or even three!
“The money raised will go towards the amazing work the Napthens Foundations supports in our local communities, making a difference to the lives of many people.”
The Bake Sale and Black History Month celebrations helped many colleagues across the firm come together, catch up and learn about our history.
Farida Isaji, from the EDI committee, explained why the cake sale and BHM were a great combination.
“Having the Bake Sale within the celebrations of Black History Month was a wonderful way to sample a taste of what makes this country so diverse and great for everyone,” said Farida.
“The fundraising event gave us all a chance to honour and share information about the contributions, achievements, and the history of black individuals and communities such as the Windrush generation.
“There were some fantastic traditional Caribbean cakes brought to the offices, and of course they raised significant money for the Napthens Foundation.
“Thank you to everyone involved.”
