On Wednesday 15th October staff from local law firm, Warner Goodman LLP, picked up their whisks instead of their pens and showed off their baking skills as they took part in the Brendoncare Bake.

The Brendoncare Foundation’s mission as a charity is to care for older people with dignity and respect, providing care for life in care centres, and tackling social isolation through friendship and well-being clubs.  Sarah Whitemore, Employment Partner at Warner Goodman LLP, commented, “Brendoncare Foundation is an incredibly important charity in the area and as we become an ageing population the work that they do is crucial to give the elderly and their families a better quality of life.”

The firm’s Southampton office turned their boardroom into a judging room, and Karen Scott from Brendoncare Foundation acted as judge of the 17 cakes that were entered.  Jonathan Strassberg, International Commercial Lawyer for the firm was triumphant with his Mocha Bundt cake.  Sarah continues, “The morning was a great success, and the cherry on the cake was that with the enthusiasm of the staff we raised £300 for the Brendoncare Foundation.  This was helped by Jonathan’s incredible generosity as he handed the £50 winners prize over to the charity.”

Carole Sawyers, Chief Executive of Brendoncare Foundation/Karen Scott added, “We are overwhelmed by the involvement and contribution from the generous Warner Goodman team.  By hosting the Brendoncare Bake every October we aim to not only raise funds but also give businesses the opportunity to do something as a firm, and to come together and have fun.  We’re extremely grateful to Warner Goodman LLP, and look forward to them taking part again next year!”
