Coffee morning tops up Macmillan charity pot

The Whitco team played their part again this year in the world’s biggest coffee morning in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.

Over the last 28 years, the Coffee morning has grown from a great idea to a fabulous fundraiser. Getting people together to raise awareness and share coffee and cake has now raised more than £200 million in the UK – with the figure for last year alone exceeding £27million.

Our team rose to the challenge once more and our offices were awash with home-baked lemon drizzle, baklava, Battenburgs, Bakewells, sausage rolls, cupcakes, croissants, chocolate cake, sponges, mince pies, patisseries and Danish pastries – among others. Even the odd Mr Kipling crept in from somewhere…

The bakers were: Nicola, Afroditi, Lynda and Carmela along with their fellow colleagues contributions to the final selection of goodies on the table which were ALL well received by the Whitco staff our business neighbours, Brown’s and Metropolitan Leather.

Our thanks to all who baked, tucked in and donated to a very worthy cause.
