St Barnabas Charity shops does Bake-Off!

12th October 2021

Over the past two weeks, our retail shops have been getting stuck in with all things ‘Bake off Mania’ by getting involved in the St Barnabas Bakeoff Window display competition!

It has been very difficult to judge these entries. All our shops that entered did very well and there were many great displays of originality, resourcefulness, and collaboration! However, there must only be one winner…

All entries were judged out of a score of 10 in three categories, originality, composition, and theme, making 30 points the maximum number of points possible.

In third place… Mablethorpe! Caroline and her team did a brilliant job using the items they had available to bring us a great display full of British Bake-off iconography, bric-a-brac and most impressive of all, an edible bread loaf. A great display of originality. Well done!

In second place… Nettleham Fields! Well done to Debbie and her team on capturing the true bake-off theme through a brilliant use of the items available to you. The display is well composed and sure did do the trick! The best part of the display of course must be the selection of cupcakes that were available for customers to enjoy! Great job once again!

And in first place we have … Lincoln High Street North! A massive congratulations to Louise and team on arranging a beautifully composed, colour rich display that is very true to the theme yet brings in all the vintage elements that your store is so popular for. You have all truly captured the Bake-off mania!

Congratulations to all the winners, your prizes will be arranged shortly. A huge well done and thank you to all the shops that took part. This competition brought all our shops together with all things Bake-off and resulted in some brilliant displays that not only looked incredible but also enticed customers into our shops and resulted in several purchases and donations being made in support of our hospice, which is what the shops are for.
