Let them eat cake, says accountancy firm in charity challenge

A North Yorkshire accountancy firm is urging businesses and individuals to “eat cake” in the final days of a charity challenge.

CCF Accountancy has even changed its name to “Crispies, Cupcakes and Flapjacks” for the You’re Inspired challenge, which is raising money for Saint Michael’s Hospice.

The team has been baking furiously ever since to fulfil customers’ orders in the challenge, which sees organisations compete to raise the most money in a month.

CCF owner Teresa Bowe said:

“We’ve been surprised by the fantastic response we’ve had so far to our fundraising – and a lot of people have complimented us on the cakes we’ve been making.

“We’re still taking orders and making deliveries, but there’s not long left until the end of the month, so now is the last chance to show your support for a fantastic cause.”

To mark the success of the project so far, CCF is inviting clients, friends and anyone who wants to support Saint Michael’s to an event in Harrogate on Friday, October 25.

Co-hosted by Berwins Solicitors, the event will see CCF unveil some special Halloween cakes designed and made by the talented team.

As well as enjoying post-work drinks, anyone who comes to the event at The Den in Cambridge Crescent can take part in a business card draw for some fantastic prizes.

You’re Inspired is an annual challenge which raises money for Saint Michael’s Hospice. Groups of colleagues and friends are given a £100 starter fund and asked to raise as much money as possible through an entrepreneurial scheme of their choice during October.

The finale of the event is an awards ceremony at the Crown Hotel at the end of the month, when teams face the judges and battle it out in an Apprentice-style showdown, hoping to hear the all-important words: “You’re Inspired!”
