On the 30th of September FPSG helped in the fight against cancer by supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”.
The event first started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning and donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process. The idea was such a simple, yet effective one that it was suggested the model be taken up on a national level, and in 1991 over 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £138 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year we invited our clients, candidates, friends and neighbours to join our team for a BIG coffee morning to raise funds to help Macmillan achieve their goal.
Our staff worked hard, baking delicious cakes, delivering leaflets to publicise the event and keeping the tea and coffee flowing.
As a result, we managed to raise £400.10 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Turnout was so good that we extended our coffee morning until 4:30 in the afternoon!
Special thanks to all bakers and our colleagues, clients, candidates and friends in Queens House who attended the event.
Finally, congratulations to our very own Tessa Sykes who picked up the award for Star Baker on the day!
