Fund raising activities held in aid of good old Pudsey Bear’s charity Children in Need, have raised a brilliant £280!

It was hard work for our staff as the activities involved eating lots of cakes and pies in our ‘Pudsey Cake v Pie’ bake off challenge (the pies won) and ‘guess the number of M&Ms’ on a chocolate finger and M&M laden cake.

All goodies were kindly donated by Orchard’s enthusiastic band of bakers – Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood would be proud! Our thanks go to the bakers of these wonderful creations and also to those that simply bought and ate them!
