The hospitals service and improvement manager, Lucie Clough, organised the event, which took place on December 6 and funds will be donated to Parkinsons UK. Staff were invited to bake Christmas cakes, cookies, truffles, cupcakes or mince pies with the chance of winning a bottle of Prosecco. Lucie, said: I am thrilled we had so many bakers contributing as this is a condition that is close to my heart. The bake-off was won by senior medical secretary, Linda Barns, who made a gold cracker chocolate cake. Paul Jackson-Clark, director of fundraising at Parkinsons UK, said: Holding an event like this is a fantastic way to raise vital funds to support our work. As the UKs Parkinsons support and research charity were leading the work to find a cure, and were closer than ever. But our work is totally dependent on donations. We are incredibly grateful to staff at Hinchingbrooke Hospital who are giving their support. I hope the event will be a huge success and will encourage others to hold their own events.
