Children in Need 2015

It’s no secret that we are a charitable bunch here at The Kerfoot Group; we love nothing more than raising money for good causes. Particularly as it’s an excuse to eat cake and be a bit silly! So on Friday 13th November; YES! I said Friday 13th the whole team were thrilled to take part in Children in Need 2015.
The staff at Goole did there bit by producing a fantastic arrangement of cakes and pastries baked by Justine, Gemma and Nicola’s mother. Alongside the cakes, Mandy,

The Kerfoot Group… In a class of their own
