Great Hanne & Co Bake Off – And the Winner is…

Katherine Low Settlement!

Well done to our 11 bakers who put on a fantastic display of skill in the Great Hanne & Co Bake Off that would have left any master patissier looking nervously over their shoulder!

First prize went to Justina Ricci, our returning champion, whose Levant-inspired rosewater & pistachio cake (second from left) had the judges sampling more than their responsibilities might seem to require.

What was left over after the unreasonably long tasting was sold off to Hanne & Co staff, some of whom were queuing up outside, and the handsome sum of £129 was raised for our very worthy chosen charity.

Valentine’s Day means…

February 14th!

Yes, it’s that time of year again…Hanne & Co’s annual bake off!

Delectable delights hand-baked by our multi-talented staff – it’s not only excellent witness statements that our solicitors can cook up – and judged by our very own Bake Off dream team of Mary Stewart, Lorna Cservenka and Maisie Lockyer. Suffice to say the tricky task of selecting the lucky judges almost turned into a bun fight!

All for KLS, our chosen charity.

Winners, photos and amount raised to follow next week!

 

05/12/2019 – A fantastic charity quiz, raffle and auction last night at The Sir Christopher Hatton pub raised an amazing £3,130 for Hanne & Co’s chosen charity – Katherine Low Settlement

In addition to our own Hanne & Co colleagues, around 70 other solicitors and barristers from 10 firms and chambers donated generously in what was a fun-filled evening of brain-teasers, nervous tension and high-stakes bidding.

Congratulations to Ely Place (below) – defending champions, who proved that last year’s victory in the quiz was no fluke.

Many thanks to Hanne’s Charity Committee for running a perfectly organized evening for such a great cause. A special mention to Steve Bannell – Master of Ceremonies, Quizmaster, Raffle Ticket Drawer and Announcer and Auctioneer Extraordinaire – whose boundless energy helped ensure everything went so smoothly.
