Hosting our 4th Macmillan Coffee Morning
Last year we had a fantastic range of goodies donated by staff Nutella and White Chocolate Flapjack, Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Muffins, Lemon Drizzle Cakes, Salted Caramel Brownies, Pork Pies and Sausage Rolls.
As well as a coffee morning our fantastic Planning Manager completed ‘Brave the Shave’ where they shaved off all their hair in support of Macmillan.
Thanks to generous donations from our staff, friends, and family, in total with the Coffee Morning and ‘Brave the Shave’, £872.00 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support. This could provide for a this could pay for a Macmillan Social Care Worker for a week, helping patients, family members and carers manage the social and practical problems of living with cancer.
