Staff from Nicholsons held its Great Nicholsons Bake Off in conjunction of World Baking Day to raise funds for The Little Princess Trust following the success of the Cake Break event for MS Society in March.
The in-house competition saw a great number of staff submitting their bakes for a chance win the Great Baker title. The cakes were judged based on their shape, surface, texture and flavour by Aimee, a baker when she is not with her calculator for the day.
Becky Wells won the competition with her carrot cake topped with candies. Emma Murray, a Director at the firm said “It is a great way for us to engage with our staff and raise money for a selected charity at the same time”.
The day ended with a cake sale from the submission received. All funds raised goes to the said charity.

The team played at the HSBC Charity Football Tournament at Sincil Bank, the grounds of the newly crowned National League champion Lincoln City Football Club during the weekends.
Runners-up last year, the team has been looking forward to go one step better and Sincil Bank has been a good inspiration for Team Nicholsons. However, losing the opening and final group games meant Nicholsons will not be qualifying for the semis this year.
Nonetheless, the team is happy to have played at Sincil Bank in the name of charity. “We will be looking forward to the tournament next year. We are a bit disappointed but the best team wins and good to see businesses taking time off to play for charity” said Richard Hallsworth, Director of the firm.

Just six more days to the launch of Lincoln Knight’s Trail, our knight known as the Pedal Pride will be unveiled to public at Michaelgate close to the Steep Hill today.
Pedal Pride will be Knight 17 of the Lincoln Knight’s Trail. The cycling-themed knight has since made a few public appearances, touring the Nicholsons’ office, and he of course got to spend some time with the Gelder Knight at the office!
Pedal Pride has also been displayed at the Craftea Café in a reception held earlier in March by the artist herself, Erin Fleming. The event gave the Directors a chance to contribute to the painting of Pedal Pride (Not a lot of course!).
He says “Hi” to everyone and is already looking forward to the Lincoln Grand Prix which will be held this weekend.
Pedal Pride will then be on guard for Lincoln and welcome visitors to the historic Bailgate as the city celebrates the 700th Anniversary of The Battle of Lincoln on the 20th May. Pedal Pride will be displayed until 3rd September.
