Staff at Leamington solicitors Blythe Liggins have put their baking skills to the test in a bake-off to raise money for The Myton Hospices’ Great Wall of China Trek.

The law firm is also sponsoring their head of wills and probate, Donna Bothamley, to take part in the charity’s walk along the Great Wall next year; paying all her expenses so that every penny she raises goes to the charity.

The cakes were judged by Becky Richards, assistant events manager at Myton, and Gill Mehmet, who was responsible for developing cakes for a major supermarket chain and now runs the Cake Company in Leamington making bespoke celebration cakes to order.

Winning baker Melanie Hallam, from the Blythe Liggins family law department, said: “I very much enjoy baking and winning this competition was just the icing on the cake!”
