The Academy at Shotton Hall bake off saw staff and students once again pull on their aprons to make some Bake Off worthy cakes to make over £700 for Macmillan Cancer support. The room was filled with astonishing cupcakes, cakes, scones and admiring visitors proving staff don’t just teach, they can also bake – and very well too. The winners were: 1st - Mrs Sullivan - rainbow cake (SCITT student), 2nd – Mrs Piggett carrot cake and 3rd Miss Walshaw - triple chocolate brownies. Special awards went to: Most original vegetable cake (with real broccoli and carrot) – Miss Bridgewater and Pride of Shotton Hall award – Miss McManus. Well done and thank you to everyone who baked and everyone who bought and enjoyed a cake.
