Great EDG Bake Off for NICHS21 October 2013
EDG was delighted to support its chosen charity partner for this year, Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke, by having a coffee morning to raise funds for its Help our Babies’ Hearts Study. Everyone at EDG took supporting their colleagues, who produced cakes that would have been the envy of the Great British Bake Off, to a whole new level, with some insisting that true solidarity meant sampling every single cake. As you can see from the photograph, given the number of cakes produced by EDG members, this was no mean feat!
