Bake-off battle backing for cancer charity

15 April 2016

Sheffield United stars took part in a special 'bake-off' style challenge to support Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.


United players Che Adams and Harrison McGahey skilfully decorated a cake in Sheffield United style, with the colourful sponge cake featuring two crossed swords to represent the Blades' club crest and the slogan 'UTB' - Up The Blades - to support the charity's 'Time for Tea Cake Off' challenge.


The pair were up against players from Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United and Barnsley.


Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity Fundraising Manager, Sarah Cross, said: "We are absolutely delighted that representatives from all four football clubs took part in this exciting cake-off event to raise funds for our Time for Tea initiative.


"We hope that the timed cake-off event will create some friendly rivalry between the players as they compete to present the best decorated cake to represent their own clubs.


"It's also a chance for fans of each club to get involved and ensure their club's cake entry wins the competition by making a donation through JustGiving in the week following the event."


Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, said: "It was great to see Che and Harrison help Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and take part in this event.


"At Sheffield United, we're always looking to support fantastic causes in a range of different ways, and this was certainly a great chance for us to give something back to our community.


"I hope that our fans recognise Che and Harrison's efforts by donating to a great cause and raise money for Weston Park Hospital."


Fans can vote for United's cake by donating to the Club's JustGiving page. The winner will be decided by which team raises the most money for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity.
