Aerospace insurance company Global Aerospace recently raised almost £700 for Thames Reach at a charity bake off.


The City of London branch of the firm held the event on Monday 13 March. There were 19 entries, with judging conducted by the pastry chef from the nearby Four Seasons Hotel.


“An amazing £300 was raised from the bake off. Along with matched funding and money raised from a dress down day, a magnificent total of £696 was donated to support our work,” said Milton Bevan, Thames Reach’s fundraising manager.


Harriet McArthur and Julie Kitto, who maintain Global Aerospace’s corporate social responsibility programme, visited Thames Reach’s Employment Academy resource centre in Camberwell to present the cheque and see the charity’s employment services in action.


“A thank you to Harriet, Julie, and all the London staff at Global Aerospace for all their hard work and fundraising efforts,” added Milton. “This is a most generous donation, and will have a real impact on those using the employment services at the Employment Academy.
