Walraven’s budding bakers will cook up some cash for Katharine House


The company is taking part in the Care For A Cuppa initiative

Budding bakers at Banbury-based Walraven are gearing up for a company bake off in October.   The event, at their Wildmere Road offices, will raise money for the Katharine House Hospice.  

The family-owned company, which operates around the world, have confirmed as taking part in the Hospice’s Care For A Cuppa initiative.

This challenges both novice and seasoned bakers to either host a fundraising coffee morning or cake sale, or – like Walraven – take on a more competitive bake-off challenge.   All the money raised will help people affected by life-limiting illnesses at Katharine House.

Walraven produces and sells installation solutions for various industries.   Sarah Young, the company’s HR, Training and Payroll Advisor, said: “Walraven Ltd has been a supporter of Katharine House for many years, organising several fundraising activities in the past such as Parachute Jumps, taking part in the hospice’s Moonlight Walks, and sponsoring their Christmas Cards.

“When I saw the Care for a Cuppa fundraiser, I knew it could be another way that we could help with all the vital fundraising that Katharine House do.”

Community Engagement Manager for Katharine House, Roseann Thompson, said: “Care for a Cuppa is perfect for bringing people together, either at school, at work or in the community. But it can also be a great way to have a bit of healthy (or unhealthy) competition.

“We’re so grateful to Walraven for taking part in our scheme and would love to hear from more likeminded organisations wanting to sign up to this mouthwatering money-maker!”

Walraven’s bake-off competition will be held on October 25.
