Michael Sears, Managing Director of Sealeys Estate Agents said:
“Many of our staff have supported a family member during their fight against cancer and have seen first-hand the amazing work of Macmillan Cancer Support. We are, therefore, delighted to have the chance to support this amazing charity on 25th September. The Great British Bake Off is a favourite show amongst our team and we also have some team members who were Chefs in their previously lives so I anticipate the baking will get quite competitive! Please come along and show your support from 10am and enjoy coffee and would should be some very nice cakes!”
