On Friday 25th September, Collect a Case staff wore their elasticated waist bands, dropped their diets for the day and gave support for a truly remarkable and worthy cause.
It was Battle of the Bakers in our offices this year. The Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was back!
Last year, Abby, our in-house Mary Berry, worked tirelessly to make a range of baked delights for the occasion. This year Abby has her own bun in the oven and so she asked her work mates to help with the spread, which quickly became the competition of the year to date.
Who would be the baking guru? Whose bottom would get soggy and who would bring along irregular-shaped balls to be presented for our consumption?
We did not realise we have so many closet bakers in our midst! Some stayed quiet and were rising to the challenge behind closed doors, while others decided to egg each other on.
The challenge was set and Friday arrived. Who would be the baking guru? Whose bottom would get soggy and who would bring along irregular-shaped balls to be presented for our consumption?
The most important question is why?
It is estimated that 1 in 3 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime. Cancer is one of the toughest fights some of us will ever face. Thankfully, as treatments improve, more and more people are living successfully with cancer in their lives.
Macmillan Cancer Support aims to support those living with cancer and offers comfort and advice to help patients and their families make tough choices and take control during a difficult and frightening time.
The money we raised at our coffee morning will help with the worldwide campaign to make sure no one has to face cancer alone.
The day was a great success. Everyone donated and voted for their best cake. It was a close (bun) fight but Abby wiped the plate clean with her vast selection of cakes with Cat slightly missing out with her delicious Banoffee Pie.
More importantly we raised an impressive £123.00. The support of the Collect a Case staff and everyone who participated was truly amazing.
Thank you for indulging and supporting a truly worthy cause.
