MacMillan coffee morning success!

Posted on 20th November 2014

Each year all of our offices participate in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support, a fabulous charity which we have always been very proud to be associated with. Early this year we bacame the official sponsors and charity fundraisers of MacMillan and we aim to raise more money over the next 9 months with other fundrasing events.

After last year’s coffee morning we raised a fabulous £2,863, and a figure we were all determined to better this time round. We’re delighted to confirm that by the skin of our teeth we have managed to exceed that amount as this year’s total came in at £2,920.

We’d obviously like to thank a lot of people without whom, these coffee mornings wouldn’t be the success they are. All the people who donated their time and baked fantastic cakes, pies, biscuits, sausage rolls (the list is endless!) the local businesses who again have been so genrous in offering great prizes for the raffle. Special thanks must go to DMA Law who not only helped us by selling raffle tickets they also donated a wonderful food hamper for the second year running,the people who donated money and attended the coffe morning (some had been to be more than one) & bought tickets for the raffle, and thanks to our great team for all their hard work in putting this together and workig so hard throughout the morning.
