On Friday 23rd March 2018, Telescope hosted a day filled with cake known as the ‘Big Tea Cosy’. Staff members were tasked with baking or buying their cakes to help raise money for Breast Cancer Haven. Based in Leeds, this charity offers free emotional, physical and practical support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

The day was a hit with the surrounding businesses as they made their way over with the promise of a good cuppa, unhealthy amounts of cake and a good conversation. There were cakes, cookies, scones sweet and savoury, chocolatey, fruity, peanut buttery, sickly, moreish, gluten-free, nut-free, topped with cream, cream-filled but best of all, they were made for a great cause.

From the bake alone, we’ve raised over £230 and we’re not done yet!

Some of our colleagues are running their cakes off in the Leeds Half Marathon on Sunday 13th March 2018. We’d be delighted if you can offer your support by way of donation.

All donations, however small, will be gratefully received and sponsors will be acknowledged on our website after the event.
