Lloyd Colne’s Bake Off for Pendleside Hospice’s Corporate Challenge

Company News

Last week, the team at Lloyd Colne held a Bake Off to raise money for Pendleside Hospice’s Corporate Challenge!

Each year, the Corporate Challenge raises vital funds for Pendleside Hospice, and is supported by various local businesses. Businesses who sign up for the challenge have until the 30th of September to raise as much money as they can, which will go towards helping the hospice’s patients and their families.

From Julies Famous Brownies and Luckie’s Boo Biscuits, to Dale’s zesty lemon drizzle cake, Eliza’s Bueno cupcakes, and Sam's raspberry and white chocolate madeleines, the Lloyd Colne team whipped up a variety of tasty treats, all to raise money for this fantastic cause.

“Whenever we have a bake sale, I always make these brownies and I always get asked to do them again, so it was a no-brainer when I was asked to make something for the Bake Off!”

Julie, Assistant Parts Manager

“I’m not much of a baker, but I try to make sugar cookies around Halloween every year, so I used our Bake off as a test-run for them!”
Luckie, Digital Merchandiser

“I’ve never really baked before, but I’m pleasantly surprised by all of the positive feedback the Drizzle Cake has gotten, I was convinced it would turn out a disaster! My wife even offered to take pity on me and help me bake it, but I knuckled down and insisted on trying to make it solo.”
Dale, Parts Advsior

Our Used Car Manager, Amy, and our Parts Manager, James, judged the team’s baking efforts, with our Customer Relations Manager, Faye, being crowned Star Baker with her delicious Biscoff banana bread. Not only did Amy win bragging rights, but she also bagged herself a swish apron and matching tea towel set!

“Banana bread was a bit of a staple for my family during the lockdown, so it was nice to be able to make it again and try changing it up with the Biscoff topping to share with everyone at work.”
Faye, Customer Relations Manager

Faye will be putting her prizes to one side, ready for when her and her partner move in together.


It takes £5.5m per year to keep Pendleside Hospice open. With only a small percentage of its funding coming from the government, the hospice relies heavily on local support to make sure they can continue to look after people in the community.

With their Bake Off, the Lloyd Colne team raised £88.22 to go towards the Corporate Challenge. The Lloyd Colne team have now raised over £3000 from their various different fundraising efforts over the last few months, with their official total raised to be announced once the challenge ends on the 30th September. The overall amount raised by all of the participants of the Corporate Challenge will then be announced at the Pendleside Corporate Challenge Awards in November.
