Our Bake Off fundraiser!

Our Bake-off fundraiser was a great success recently, helping to raise money for a girl who has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

Our staff have been busy baking buns, cakes and pastries in their very own ‘Bake Off’ held as a fundraiser to support a local girl with cancer.

Our company held a ‘bake sale’ in its offices on Friday 21st September, which raised £140 towards supporting Paris Sloan, aged 9 from Huddersfield, who was diagnosed in August 2018 with Synovial Sarcoma, a rare form of tissue cancer. Paris’ family are close friends of Stuart Proctor, an estimator/surveyor at Horbury Group.

Unfortunately, chemotherapy was not effective and due to the complexity of the cancer and the area in which it is in, proton therapy in Germany or America was not an option and therefore, Paris will lose her arm. This will be life changing for such a young girl hence the reason for the fundraising. The operation will take place on Monday 24th September in Birmingham.

Dave Taylor, Pre-Construction Director at the Horbury Group, said: “We would like to thank our staff for their efforts in baking some wonderful cakes and buns, making it really hard to judge a winner!  When we heard about Paris’ story we were really keen to help with the fundraising and the Bake Off was an ideal way”.

This is the second year that Horbury Group has held its own ‘Bake Off’ competition and fundraiser, which last year raised £140 for Sheffield charity WORK Ltd.

The home-made treats were judged by Dave Taylor, Pre-Construction Director of Horbury Group, Alex Fletcher (Regional Manager, Titan Flooring) and Karen Williams (last year’s Bake Off Champion).  Congratulations go to Sally Vardy who was voted Star Baker, with her excellent Horbury Construction Cake!
