Staff raise more than £500 with cake-making efforts
North Devon Council staff held their own version of the Great British Bake Off to raise money for Children in Need.
Staff members proved they are dab hands at baking and fundraising, with 37 cakes, sponges and desserts being created. That led to a fantastic total of £578.11 being raised.
The baked entries came from staff, councillors, friends and family, whose creations were judged at three different council sites across six cake categories.
The three-strong judging panel of Cllr Yvette Gubb, BBC Radio Devon reporter Kirk England and Angela Grigg picked Community Protection Manager Amanda Palmer as the overall winner for her impressive Pudey Bear-themed chocolate cake, also the winner in the ‘showstopper’ category.

Cllr Gubb said: “All of the entries were amazing and would have given the Great British Bake-off contestants a real run for their money. The cakes were delicious - but, having tasted all 37 entrants on the day, I think I’ve eaten enough cake for a while!
“Congratulations to everyone who took part and of course to all staff members who then bought slices of cake, raising the money for Children in Need.”
