Southampton Solicitors Raise £300 for Brendoncare

Emma Wyatt and Sarah Whitemore from Warner Goodman presenting cheque for £300 to Fundraising team

Staff from Southampton law firm Warner Goodman visited Brendoncare's Central Office in Winchester to present a cheque for £300, raised during their Mad Hatter’s Tea Party baking challenge.

The event, which took place at the end of October, saw staff bringing in an impressive variety of cakes, including playing cards, top hats, tea pots and heart shaped cakes, to raise money to support Brendoncare’s work with older people. Brendoncare’s Bake is an annual fundraising campaign, and this year’s Bake took on the theme of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”.

Sarah Whitemore, Employment Law Partner for Warner Goodman said: “This is the second year we have taken part in the Brendoncare Bake. We couldn’t miss the opportunity to take part again and raise money for this fantastic charity, especially as there was an extra challenge this year to keep to the Mad Hatter’s theme! By taking part in the Bake, not only can we raise money for the charity, but it also brings our staff together in a way that we aren’t often able to. We’re looking forward to finding out next year’s theme already.”

Sarah, along with her colleague Emma Wyatt, presented the cheque to Brendoncare’s Fundraising Officer Tammy Angus, pictured with Fundraising Manager Teresa Williams and Fundraising Assistant James Morley.

Tammy, with HR Manager Cath Dixon, had been invited to help judge the cakes on the day. Tammy said: “The attention to detail on some of the cakes was stunning. The team really made a big effort, and most of all they had fun doing it all. We’re really grateful to everyone at Warner Goodman who took part and helped to raise such an amazing total.”
