A BUMPER bake-off by lawyers and office staff at the Sheffield office of Kennedys has raised more than £400 for city-based brain disease and injury charity Neurocare.

The Kennedys team baked buns and cakes, decorated in Neurocare’s colours of purple and green and sold them to people working throughout the flagship Digital Campus complex of offices, where the law firm is based.

Cash raised will go towards bringing pioneering imaging technology to Sheffield which is currently only available in the United States to measure the volume and growth rate of low grade tumours, allowing neurosurgeons to decide the best time to operate.

Neurocare funds state-of-the-art equipment, facilities and nurse training at the Royal Hallamshire, which is one of the country’s leading neuro centres. Sheffield office lead partner and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce president, Suzanne Liversidge, said: “We are delighted to help such a fantastic city charity. I was amazed by the quantity and quality of cooking that went on. It was a brilliant bake-off.”

Sheffield’s Europa Subaru and Pinders Digital Print have joined forces to help Neurocare by providing fundraiser Emma Douglas with a state of the art Subaru Forester, branded with the charity’s corporate colours.
