Our lovely Finance Manager, Natalie, is hosting a Stand Up to Cancer Bake Sale at Engage’s Royal Wootton Bassett office.
The bake sale and the Engage team will be jammin’ in Bowman House’s break out area on Monday 8th April at 10am.
We hope that you will join us in raising some dough for charity and trying some of the Engage teams’ bakes!
We are also running a sweepstake. All you knead to do is pay £2 to play and choose a ‘baking goody’ from the poster below.
The winner will win £20 and will be revealed at the end of the bake sale.
