Adzuna Bake Off raises over £10,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support

Adzuna’s 2019 challenge saw our UK team take to the streets of London to raise money for charity…. through the power of cake! This was no ordinary bake sale, in true ‘Apprentice’ style, 6 Adzuna teams were in direct competition with each other throughout the day; doing whatever they could to sell the most grub and raise the most money. We set our sights on raising £1,000 per team (or £6,000 in total) for Macmillan Cancer Research – a truly wonderful charity.

Macmillan provides invaluable support for people going through all forms of cancer – they also helped save the life of our Co-founder, Andrew. We are therefore delighted to report that as a result of some hard graft, fabulous baking, inspired team tactics and your generous donations/healthy appetites, Team Adzuna smashed its target raising a whopping £10,205.04!

There were so many highlights from the day. It was wonderful popping up and selling cakes to the public in places like North End Market, The Embankment & Fulham Library as well as visiting our hungry tech friends at Secret Escapes, Onfido, Peakon, TechNation, Monzo & more. We were amazed by the generosity, the insatiable appetites and the willingness to support our cause. We’ve included a few snaps from the day below.

Congratulations to our winning team “The Loafers” who narrowly beat “I Love it When a Flan Comes Together” to raise over £3,000 on the day. It would also be remiss of us to not mention our Product Director Ievers Shier – miraculously, Ievers manage to sell a single cookie for a staggering £1,000! Now if that doesn’t take the biscuit, I don’t know what does.

Until next year, folks. Thanks again for your fantastic support.
