Solicitors put baking skills to the test to raise money for hospice

Ian Hughes 7th Dec, 2018

SWEET-TOOTHED staff at Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins have put their baking skills to the test to raise money for The Myton Hospices’ Great Wall of China Trek.

The law firm is also sponsoring their head of wills and probate Donna Bothamley to take part in the charity’s walk along the Great Wall next year – paying all her expenses so every penny she raises goes to the charity.

The bake off fund-raiser saw cakes judged by Becky Richards, assistant events manager at Myton, and Gill Mehmet, who was responsible for developing cakes for a major supermarket chain and now runs the Cake Company in Leamington making bespoke celebration cakes to order.

Winning baker Melanie Hallam, from the Blythe Liggins family law department, said: “I very much enjoy baking and winning this competition was just the icing on the cake.”
