USTAXFS Team Bakes for Charity
As part of our continually evolving business, we are working hard to increase our Corporate responsibility and encouraging our staff to think of ways we can give back to the communities around us.In July we took part in a team building event ‘Bake Off’ style.
Organised and hosted by Team Tactics, the event was a great success and involved baking cakes to donate to the Ace of Clubs charity. Ace of Clubs is a community organisation helping find safe shelter, food, warmth, clothing, laundry, and showers for those who are homeless, vulnerable and otherwise marginalised in our area…a place where they can find acceptance, provide a sense of belonging and renewed purpose.
Employees from US Tax & Financial were split into groups and given a variety of challenges – to make a Victoria Sponge cake with no directions from the chef, decorate cupcakes, prepare salted caramel, and make delicious chocolates.
Each of our three teams managed this with varying degrees of success. Some looked excellent, some interesting and some even edible. In the end, Dave Daley’s team won for the most artistic decoration and Andrew Aldridge’s team for the best Victoria Sponge.
Thank you to all involved for a fun and worthwhile event. We look forward to our next contribution!
