There are many ways to support a charity, from donating your time to taking part in a marathon. One of ReachOut’s corporate partners, UBS, got their workforce involved through their latest venture by hosting the “Bi-Annual Finance Bake Off”!

The theme was “War of the Worlds” and included an invasion of aliens and other extra-terrestrial beings. There were awards up for grabs too:

  • Best Decoration – Alien Invasion
  • Best Tasting – BB8 Star Wars
  • Fastest Selling – Chocolate Overload

ReachOut has been a strategic partner of UBS UK's Community Affairs programme since 2013. Over the years, UBS has provided funding; leveraged the skills and expertise of their employees through volunteering; and competed in charity tournaments and half marathons to raise funds for ReachOut!

ReachOut would like to say a massive thank you to all of the fabulous UBS bakers for their creative designs, the UBS MD’s John Carver, Fiona McCarthy, Greg Simpson and Eq Samra who sold the cakes, and to everyone who bought some goodies and helped raise money for ReachOut.

The total amount raised was an amazing £520 which was matched by UBS Community Affairs with £500, bringing the grand total to £1,020!
