Edinburgh born and bred, Peter Sawkins, may have been named the winner of this year’s Great British Bake Off but he’s not the only master baker in the capital.

Our very own Irene Wadsworth, Ticket Inspector at Edinburgh Trams, has scooped the top prize in our reward and recognition initiative – You Are Tramtastic!

Irene was nominated and chosen as this year’s winner for organising a charity cake bake event which raised over £450 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Irene said:

“After losing my Dad to cancer last year, organising this event was the least I could do to show my appreciation for Macmillan Cancer Support. But, not only did we raise money for a worthwhile cause, I know my colleagues had a great time enjoying all of the baking.”

Irene was nominated with more than 60 other colleagues but the Board of Directors decided it was Irene who has gone above and beyond to deliver ‘Excellence for Edinburgh’.

Our Managing Director, Lea Harrison, thanked Irene for her efforts and presented her award which included £250 Amazon vouchers.

Lea Harrison, Managing Director said:

“It is important for us that we recognise and reward our colleagues who demonstrate our values of being Trusted, Innovative, Passionate and Smart. Irene shows this not only with our customers but with our colleagues and the wider community. She is indeed, Tramtastic.”
