Does your company have a soggy bottom?


Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People wants companies in Leicestershire to put their ‘honey’ where their mouth is for a new baking challenge. ‘Flour Power’ challenges colleagues to see who’s a good crumb and who has a soggy bottom – all while helping to ‘raise’ vital funds for the hospice, which currently cares for 358 children and young people with life-limiting or terminal illnesses, including those from Leicestershire. Businesses, clubs and organisations from across Leicestershire are invited to show off their culinary creations by holding a bake sale. Before tucking in, the charity wants colleagues to judge each other’s entries and pick a winner. A photo of the winning bake will be displayed on Rainbows’ website. As a bonus, any company pledging to raise over £100 will receive a Rainbows prize pack and have its winning entry sent to Rainbows Ambassador and Royal Wedding Cake creator Fiona Cairns. Every few months, she will choose from those winners to crown an overall champion who will receive a special prize. Tom Stanyard, Corporate Partnership Fundraiser, said: “Bake sales have always been a simple and fun way to get involved and support Rainbows. We think this adds another layer of fun to them and is something a bit different – there’s a competitive ingredient now. Any funds you raise will make a real difference to everyone at the hospice so simply set a date for your colleagues to bake their delicious delicacies and bring them in to the office. Judge and take a picture of the best looking, then sample them all to decide who got it ‘beautifully moist’ and who over-whipped the cream. Don’t forget to sell them!” To get involved visit www.rainbows.co.uk/bake
