Macmillan Coffee Morning
England & Company held a coffee morning today to raised funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. It is part of Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where they ask people across the UK to hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. Last year, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million. England & Company would like to contribute to beating that total this year… and of course it’s a great excuse for a slice of cake!
The team baked a number of tasty treats and arranged a sweepstake aimed at guessing which coffee had a double espresso shot in it! Perhaps the team are used to lots of caffine because nobody was able to win, so all sweepstake winnings were donated to the charity as well.
Altogether, a fantastic total of £232 was raised (an additional £58 to be added as gift aid) for a very worth cause and all those with a sweet tooth were left feeling very happy indeed.
