A few weeks ago here at People Tree, we were supporting the Breast Cancer Campaign #wearitpink. Walking into the headquarters on Friday 24th October, it felt as if you were wearing a pair of rose-tinted specs. The office was awash with different shades of pink, from bubble-gum to peach and fuchsia to cerise; everyone had come wearing something pink to support the cause. But the vibrancy of the office was not the main source of excitement that day; in order to raise money to donate to charity, we held our very own ‘Bake Off’.
An array of sweet treats were created for the event including rocky roads, various flavoured cupcakes and even a decadent avocado and chocolate cake; it turns out the office is home to several undercover star bakers! Anticipation grew rapidly as the cakes were arranged on the stall and as the sale was declared open, there were no orderly queues formed. Members of the team rushed to be the first to get their hands on some of the homemade goodies, with people returning to their desks, plates piled high, ready to indulge. Once everyone from ours and the surrounding offices had, had their fill, the remainder of the delicious baked goods were donated to Crisis UK, to be enjoyed by people in need. The bake sale proved extremely successful, with £177.21 raised in just a few short hours!
Although the yummy cakes were a major hit with everyone, it was the cause behind this event which was most important to us here at People Tree. With 1000 women still dying from breast cancer in the UK every month, the fight isn’t over, and we can’t wait to #binthebeige again next year to help raise funds to find a cure for breast cancer. Until then why not take a look at some of the ‘pink picks’ chosen by our intern Amelia, available for you to shop now at People Tree.
