Wymondham toy firm boosts EACH funds with cake-making competition

A Wymondham-based toy manufacturer held a cupcake-making competition to mark the launch of a new game and raise funds for charity.

Orchard Toys has pledged to raise �2,100 towards East Anglia's Children's Hospices and its centre at Quidenham this year.

The company decided to stage its own cake-making competition amongst staff following the launch of 'Where's my Cupcake?' - a game for children aged three years and up.

Simon Newbery, managing director at Orchard Toys said: 'Many of the staff like to bake and we all have a sweet tooth, so we thought that a cupcake baking competition would be a great way to launch our latest game, Where's my Cupcake?'

The firm asked Mark Loades, Norfolk Partnerships Manager at EACH, to judge the competition and all monies raised from the sale of the cupcakes will be donated to the charity.
