October has been jam packed with Donnelly Group Foundation events - read more about what has been happening below.

The Donnelly Group Foundation Bake Off - Grand Final

Following the success of the The Great Donnelly Group Bake Off and Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 20th September, Star Bakers from each location were straight back to the kitchen on Tuesday 1st October for the Grand Final!

Hosted by South West College at their Dungannon Campus, the finalists were put through their paces as they baked for two of Northern Ireland's finest award-winning celebrity chefs - Michael Deane of Deanes Restaurants Belfast and Noel McMeel of the Lough Erne Resort.

After an exciting morning's baking, Sam Fyffe from Donnelly Group sister company TBC Conversions was awarded the top spot!

Sam was the lucky winner of a full day experience with Noel McMeel at Lough Erne Resort and a beautiful Galway Crystal Vase - congratulations to Sam and a huge thank you to Noel, Michael, South West College and our Bake Off finalists for making the day what it was!

The Donnelly Group Foundation Abseil

If that wasn't enough excitement, a team of brave Donnelly Group colleagues with a head for heights took to the Europa Hotel, Belfast to abseil on Sunday 13th October in less than pleasant conditions!

Thank you to all of our participants for a great morning and for all of the fundraising efforts.
