Paul Crowley & Co, which has offices in Anfield and Liverpool city centre, hosted the event on Friday (3 March), as part of Dementia UK’s ‘time for a cuppa’ campaign.
Staff from across the firm were invited to enter their bakes into the competition and sample cakes, tea and coffee in return for a small donation.
Liverpool TV personalities June and Leon stepped in to sample and judge the bakes, with prizes for best taste and most appealing cake. April Gallagher was awarded the best tasting cake, while Elle Hayes took home the prize for most appealing cake.
A charity raffle was also held, with special prizes donated by local businesses. Prizes included, signed Liverpool FC merchandise, Malmaison Hotel champagne afternoon tea, along with tickets for Knowsley Safari Park, the Comedy Club and various beauty treatments from local salons.
After the judging and awarding of prizes the public were invited in for tea coffee and cakes.
Senior partner, Paul Crowley, says: “I am delighted to say that we raised over £270.00 for Dementia UK, and I hope that our donation will go a long way in helping the life-changing work that they do for families."
“A massive thank you to Chloe Welsh, a paralegal in our clinical negligence department, who took the time to organise the event, a cause very close to the heart of many of our team and clients.”
Dr. Hilda Hayo, chief admiral nurse at Dementia UK, says: “The incredible amount raised by companies like Paul Crowley & Co allows Dementia UK to provide more Admiral Nurses, who are a lifeline for many families. Events like this are a fantastic way for communities to come together.
“We currently have 184 Admiral Nurses across the country and we want to increase this number to 200 by the end of March. We believe that everybody with dementia, and their families, should have access to this specialist care and support.”
