Horbury Group Raises Dough for Local Charity

Employees from the Horbury Group have put their baking skills to the test for local charity WORK Ltd.

Members of staff took part in the annual ‘Great Horbury Bake Off’ which raised £140 for the charity, which provides life skills and occupational training for people with learning disabilities in Sheffield and surrounding areas.  

The home-made treats were judged by Trevor Wragg, Chief Executive of Horbury Group, Adrian Willgoose, MD for Horbury Joinery and Glynis Philliskirk, Centre Manager for Work Ltd and The Hidden Gem Café. Once a winner was crowned, the cakes and biscuits were then sold to staff to raise money for the charity.

Congratulations should go to Karen Williams, who was judged to be Star Baker for her delicious Mandarin Butterfly Buns!

Trevor Wragg, said: “This year’s Great Horbury Bake Off was bigger and better than ever before. There were some wonderful bakes this year, ranging from elaborate profiterole cakes to caramel shortbread, so many of our staff made a huge effort!  We are delighted to have been able to add to the total raised for WORK Ltd already as it makes a huge difference to those who are supported by the charity.”

Already this year, Horbury Group has donated more than £50,000 to Work Ltd through a series of charitable programmes and events; including the recent Virtual Work for a Day initiative, which raised over £16,000. The company has also taken part in Total Warrior, Dress Down Friday’s, Tuck Shop and team Golf Days.

In addition colleagues have also donated their skills, carrying out refurbishment works at Work Ltd, to help transform their classrooms into modern, airy, state of the art facilities.
