A long-running recuitment firm has put the icing on the cake for one children’s charity with a big bake-off in Burnley.

The Neville Gee Recruitment team hit the kitchen to raise money for a charity set up by a Burnley mum who lost her nine-month-old daughter Millie in a nursery choking accident.

Neville Gee staff members Colette Lord-Thomas, Amy O'Neill, Jessica Howe, Gina Deehan and Liana Akbar on their chartity cake stall organised in aid of Millies Trust.

Staff pulled out their best recipes for the bake-off and helped raise more than £500 for Millie’s Trust which provides potentially life-saving first aid training for parents and nurseries.

The budding bakers whipped up a mountain of muffins, buns, cakes and cookies for the event which coincided with National Baking Week.

The fund-raiser proved a cakewalk as shoppers snapped up the cakes in exchange for a small donation.

Colette Ward-Thomas, recruitment consultant at the Hargreaves Street firm, said: “It went really well.

“We were overwhelmed with how many people took the time to bake cakes for us and the great support we got from people in Burnley.

“Everyone was interested to hear about the vital work Millie’s Trust does in providing first aid training.

“We have made more than £500 so far and there are still donations coming in.”
