No Tricks, Only Treats at JMDA’s Halloween Bake Event
Continuing their support of the road safety charity Brake, the team at JMDA’s Headquarters held a spooky Halloween baking and fancy-dress event. All cake entry donations will go straight to the charity, who support victims of road traffic accidents.
Never ones to pass on an exciting dress up event, sweet-toothed members of the team embraced the recent Halloween baking challenge. The team created a feast of ghoulish, spooky themed treats with all proceeds raised going to their chosen charity for 2018, Brake. Keen to put their creativity skills to the test, the team embraced the opportunity to design, bake and decorate a selection of homemade treats, eager to be crowned the latest ‘Brake Baker’.
Phil Tierney who won the ‘Brake Baker’ award in February for his rich and indulgent chocolate flower cakes, explains, ‘It’s great that the team get behind fundraising charity events such as this Halloween dress up and baking event. The team certainly surpassed their ‘Bake for Brake’ efforts last time; there were some fantastic entries. Chris Carter was crowned the ‘Brake Baker’ for his ghoulish green chocolate muffins. JMDA’s Manager for China Jason Song who is based at the company’s office in Shanghai joined us on Skype and judged the best outfit competition. He thought Rob’s ‘Dr Death’ outfit was brilliant and crowned him the fancy dress winner.”
The team’s Halloween baking event is the latest event being held to raise funds for Road safety charity Brake. Besides various cake baking events, Philip and Tom from the team raised an impressive £350 for the charity by completing an exhilarating zip line challenge in July. The team also embarked on a gruelling virtual fitness race to their office in Shanghai China at the start of 2018. Setting themselves the target of collectively travelling the 5751 miles to Shanghai, the team are working hard to complete the challenge before the end of the year; and it doesn’t stop there! The team have even more fundraising ideas up their sleeves for the remaining months of 2018 including participating in Brake’s Road Safety Superhero Day on 23rd November. Designing their own superhero costume and super powers, the team will come to work dressed as superheroes to help raise awareness of road safety. JMDA look forward to announcing their fundraising total for the year and making their final donation to Brake in December.
