Bakers from across the organisation cooked up a variety of sweet treats, with Holly Robinson, administrator to the clinical team leaders, being crowned the bake-off winner with her gluten-free brownies.

Martin tasted a variety of bakes, from lemon cake to rocky road and even some homemade raspberry sauce - but it was the brownies that he decided scooped the win.

More than £150 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Care during the coffee morning at the Longbow site in Shrewsbury.

Kayleigh Davies, head of HR at Shropdoc, said: “It was a lovely morning, and huge thanks go to Martin for officially opening the bake sale with a traditional Oyez and for being the judge of our bake-off.

“And huge thanks to our bakers for all of their hard work - the cakes were so tasty and very much enjoyed by all.”

All money raised from the bake sale and coffee morning will support Macmillan’s vital work, funding Macmillan nurses, the Support Line and providing financial support to those suffering with cancer and their families.
