Cakes and prizes – support Macmillan with us

Posted on 12th September 2023

This year, our Crook and Darlington branches are again supporting the ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ on Friday, 29th September.

Over the years we’ve raised thousands of pounds for this truly remarkable charity and we hope to contribute this year with your support. Many friends and families have been affected by cancer at some point and these charities do fantastic jobs caring for both the patients and the families.

Our Crook office is making an extra special effort this year – not only with the usual sweet treats, teas and coffees but also running a fantastic raffle as part of the day’s proceedings with all money raised going to Macmillan.

All we ask is that you buy some slices on our ‘Wheel of Fortune’ to be in with a chance to win one of a selection of amazing prizes on offer. Slices are available at £5 for 1 entry or £10 for 3 entries.

All payments can be made either in the Crook branch or via bank transfer to:

Account Name: Mrs Angela Banks
Sort Code: 309487
Account Number: 69675563
(This account is solely for the purpose of Macmillan)

Please email Branch Manager, Angela, at if you pay online. We will require your name, contact number and email address. She will respond to confirm receipt.

All prizes have been donated by the staff and a number of local businesses. Please help show your support to Macmillan by joining in. Good Luck!
