Willows gets that festive feeling!
13 January 2016
During December the team at Willows embraced the festive feeling whilst raising money for two great charities.
Budding bakers donned their aprons to take part in our staff Christmas bake off! This proved to be very competitive, with lots of entries and amazing bakes. Staff members made a donation in return for tasting the goodies and were then asked to vote for the best baked goods. Voting was based on taste and presentation. The competition ran over a two week period, so as you can imagine, there was a lot of cake eating going on behind the scenes in the staff room!
The star baker was Emma O’Neil, a member of Willows Nursing team, winning the competition with her amazing snowman cake! Emma received a bottle of Champagne and a very unique 'Willows Bake Off Champion' Apron!
The money raised from the bake off was generously matched by the Directors. Emma’s chosen charity to receive the donation of £450 was the CADASIL Foundation (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopathy).

If you were visiting the practice on Friday 18th December, you may have seen some of our staff members looking very festive in their Christmas jumpers. The team were invited to donate money in exchange for wearing a Christmas jumper. The worst/best jumper winner got to choose a charity to receive the money raised from the entry fees. We would like to thank our clients that were generous in their donations on the day, and again the money was matched by the Directors, bringing the total to £416!
Mike Perkins, our IT Manager was the winner - you might have guessed that Mike’s jumper was adorned with technology, twinkling lights and moving reindeer eyes!
Andrew Kent, our medicine clinician was runner up and, being a little less than impressed with second place, turned his back on the camera!
Mike’s chosen charity to receive the donation was SANDS, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity, please follow the link to find out more about this charity www.uk-sands.org
