Let them eat cake!

Some of our readers may be aware that in December 2014 Kate Shrimpton, a member of our Conveyancing team, suddenly passed away. Kate was a very valued member of the team, fantastic with our clients and a vibrant personality around the office.

Following Kate’s death, we have wanted to do something to raise some funds for a charity close to Kate’s heart. After consultation with her family, we decided to host the SME Great British Bake Off for St Michael’s Hospice.

On 7 September 2015, cakes of all shapes and sizes were carefully transported to the office and beautifully exhibited in our bunting decked interview room. Whether chocolate, lemon, fruit or vegetable is your thing – you name it, we had it!

Despite cries of foul play (he did bake it really!) the clear winner for presentation was Will Cadbury, SME’s Trainee Solicitor. Litigation secretary Joanne Rice fought off stiff competition from three other lemon cakes to be crowned overall winner for taste and Probate secretary Jane Barker was Star Baker for her Mickey Mouse shaped cheese biscuits.

The SME team have never eaten so much cake in one day! But of course it was all for a good cause. We are pleased to say that we raised £130.27 on the day which will be sent to St Michaels for use in the hospice.

We think Kate would have approved!
