A BAKE-OFF by lawyers and staff in the Sheffield office of Kennedys has raised more than £400 for city-based brain disease and injury charity Neurocare.

The Kennedys team baked buns and cakes – all in Neurocare’s colours of purple and green – which were sold to companies throughout the Digital Campus complex of offices.

Neurocare funds equipment, facilities and nurse training at the Royal Hallamshire and supports pioneering research projects at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience into degenerative conditions such as motor neurone disease and Parkinson’s disease.

It is holding a month-long awareness and fund raising campaign in Novem-ber encouraging businesses, schools, students and individuals to take part in purple and green-themed events.

City office lead partner Suzanne Liversidge, who is president of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to help such a fantastic city charity. I was amazed by the quantity and quality of cooking that went on. It was a brilliant bake-off!”
