TSL Member, Thornton Lodge Action Group Hosts Successful Mother and Daughter Bake-Off
In Partnership with Huddersfield Community First and supported by Community Learning Works, Thornton Lodge Action Group co-ordinated a Tea Party for mothers and daughters for the local community. Over 200 people flowed through the doors, who all had an opportunity to vote for the 7 entrants competing in the community bake off competition. All entrants’ cakes were tasty, rich, creative in design and worthy winners, however, the winner selected by the community and the judges was mother and daughter team of Nuhida Ali and Aneesa Ali who won £50. Lost for words on the afternoon, Nuhida offered a written quote:
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for our cake and the judges for choosing our cake as the winner. Everyone’s cakes were amazing, and I’m sure they all enjoyed making them with their daughters. I would also like to thank the event organisers, for their efforts in putting everything together. It was a good turnout and i hope everyone enjoyed the lovely cakes.
Bridget Hughes from Community Learning Works said:
Well done to all the team at Thornton Lodge Action Group for organising such an enjoyable and successful community event and congratulations to the winners and all the entrants. These ladies are very talented and have further developed through attending courses at TAG. This event shows how community learning can help people develop skills for employment and self-employment.
Thornton Lodge Action Group would like to thank our partner Huddersfield Community First, our event sponsor Community Learning works and the volunteers for the support in running a successful event.
