Lawyers and support staff in one Australian firm have shown off their culinary talents in support of the Cancer Council.

Carter Newell Lawyers held its 12th annual bake-off on 26 May, in support of the Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea.

The firm’s staff contributed a range of sweet and savoury dishes and raised $1,000 for the Cancer Council.

Rebecca Lawrence from the Cancer Council joined Carter Newell special counsel Amy Gill, filing clerk Michael Peel and CFO Daren White on the judging panel.


The award for best savoury dish went to partner Bronwyn Clarkson for her mini quiches. Marketing co-ordinator Ella Donlevy-Morrison won best sweet dish for her five-layer butter cake (pictured). Partner Luke Preston won the overall award for his tarte aux fruits.

“A popular day in the firm’s workplace giving program calendar, staff donated money in order to sample the delicious food on offer,” Carter Newell said.

“The Cancer Council’s Biggest Morning Tea raises vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support services.”
