The Management Recruitment Group (MRG) held its second charity event of the year last Friday in the form of a ‘Mad Hatters Prosecco Tea Party’ in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Held across two of its offices in Twickenham and Monument, the staff got their ‘Great British Bake Off’ on and threw the Lewis Carroll-themed cake sale with a strict ‘No Cake, No Prosecco’ policy. Some amazing cakes were baked by the staff ranging from ‘sparkly glitter’ vanilla & chocolate cupcakes, chocolate brownies, mars bar slices, ‘Tooty Frooty twist’ Victoria sponge, various other types of cup-cakes, pistachio cookies, red velvet cake, coffee cake, Battenberg, chocolate cake; and even some monstrous home-made sausage rolls! Charity committee member and marketing manager, Nick Hamilton, said, “We had such an amazingly huge and varied selection that it was hard to tell which were the most popular!.......In fact, that’s a lie – it was the Prosecco. The Prosecco was the most popular. “But the guys outdid themselves as overall we managed to raise a stunning £612.50! Not bad for an afternoons (sic) work, and all in a very good name. “Thanks to everyone who baked and donated and a special thanks also to Leap Legal Software (also based in Regal House Twickenham) who generously donated £100!”
