Cowgill Holloway staff raise plenty of dough for local charities

Cowgill Holloway staff raise plenty of dough for local charities
Staff at leading North West accountancy and advisory firm, Cowgill Holloway, cooked up a delicious way to raise money for three local Bolton charities by holding a ‘bake-off’ style baking competition.
Staff and Partners at the firm were asked to anonymously submit their cakes for judging by three representatives of the chosen charities. The team got creative in their kitchens and produced some fantastic entries, making the judging even more difficult.
The competition was part of an ongoing initiative to support local charities, Paws for Kids, Birtenshaw and NPSCC Bolton & Bury. The sales of the cakes, biscuits and other treats raised much needed funds, which will be split across the charities. This money will be added to the total funds that staff have raised through various fundraising events over the year and ‘dress down’ days.
There was only one rule for the competition entries; after the judging, all of the cakes could be eaten by staff – providing a donation to the charities was given.
The winner of the Cowgill’s Bake Off was the impressive ‘Cowgills’ cake , made by Lauren Heeley. This was based on the head office building in Bolton. Second and third prizes were won by Joanne Bownass and Gill Power for their carrot cake and ‘Cowgills Bake Off’ cupcakes respectively.
As well as the Bake-Off, staff take part in monthly ‘dress down’ days and other charity initiatives throughout the year.
Rob Lord, Partner at Cowgill Holloway, said: “We are passionate about supporting local charities and good causes. Our staff chose Paws for Kids, Birtenshaw and NSPCC as they are charities that are close to our hearts. I am delighted with the effort everyone has made today and throughout the year to raise such a fantastic amount of money for three very deserving charities.”
