On Friday 21st October, we took part in Forever Manchester’s baking extravaganza, Caketober, to raise money for the charity.
Throughout October, Forever Manchester are encouraging people across the city to embrace their inner Mary Berry and bake and sell their creations to raise money. As keen supporters of both Forever Manchester and baked goods, we were excited to hold our own Caketober day. Together, we baked a variety of tasty treats, including chocolate brownies, banana bread and a Halloween-inspired showstopper made by consultant Matt Goddard.
Matt's scary sponge went down a treat!
Our director Duane is an ambassador for the charity, so was extra enthusiastic about taking part:
“As a proud ambassador for Forever Manchester, I was really excited for Realm to get stuck into this year’s Caketober. It seemed like an excellent opportunity to raise money for the organisation and a perfect excuse to eat cake! I’m really pleased that the entire team got involved and collected a decent amount of money that will go towards supporting and funding good causes across the city.”
We sold our bakes to our hungry colleagues throughout the day and raised £86.00 for Forever Manchester.
