As you may have noticed, last Friday marked the official date of Macmillan’s The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is an annual national event run by Macmillan Cancer Support to encourage people to get together and enjoy a slice of cake (or two) all while raising important funds for the charity. The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990 but it’s become a much bigger affair since then.
We’re never ones to pass up an opportunity to sample some delicious baked goods – especially not when it’s in support of such an amazing cause – so on the 29th September we hosted our very own coffee mornings at both our Newcastle and Liverpool offices.
Particular favourites on the day included some yummy vegan cupcakes and a delectable double chocolate cake featuring our logo which was a big hit at our HQ in South Shields, Newcastle.
Over the morning, we raised an amazing £330 pounds across the business. All funds raised by coffee mornings like ours will go towards supporting the charity in its efforts to provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support to those affected by cancer.
We all had a great morning and enjoyed the chance get together over a cuppa to support such a worthy cause. One in three of us will face cancer so we’re pleased to have had the opportunity to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support so they can continue working hard to ensure no one has to face this battle alone.
Last year Macmillan’s national event raised an incredible £29.5 million and this year we’re hoping our involvement and will contribute towards their aim to raise even more.
