Great Mayoral Bake Off raises hundreds of pounds for local charities

The Right Worshipful Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Brent Charlesworth, has raised more than £350 by hosting his own version of the Great British Bake Off.

City of Lincoln Council staff and councillors were invited to take part in the Great Mayoral Bake Off, held on Friday, August 29.

A judging panel comprised of the council’s civic party sampled more than a dozen cakes baked across three categories: sponge cakes, cheesecakes and cup cakes.

The Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Brent Charlesworth, says: “I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came to the bake off, especially to civic friends from around the county and officers from City Hall too.

“I’d like to say a particular thank you to those who baked and provided us all with some of the most tasty cakes I think I’ve tasted in a long time.

“It was a really good afternoon and I hope I’ve raised some money and awareness for my two charities.”

Staff were invited to watch the tasting during their lunch breaks. The event, along with a dress down day for staff, raised £351.78 for the Mayor’s chosen charities – Lincoln Dial-a-ride and Development Plus.
