Taking time out for cake and a chat at our Macmillan coffee morning

On Wednesday 5th October 2022, we had a lovely drop-in coffee morning, for all staff, young people and associates to take a break, catch up with each other and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research at the same time.
Our head office manager, Sarah Fawcett, co-ordinated the event, held at our HQ in West Vale, rallying staff’s enthusiasm with promises of admin assistant, Rosie’s, exceptional home baking. Rosie did not disappoint! Giant cookies and buns were enjoyed by all.
It was a wonderful turnout from everyone and Sarah Carroll, our HR manager on tea duty, did a sterling job keeping the kettle boiling and cups filled.
Sarah Fawcett said “It was great to take a moment to chat with everyone rather than just the usual quick hello whilst people are passing through the office. Some people shared their experiences of cancer of friends and family too and it all felt very personal, and an even more worthwhile way to spend time having a brew together.”
We raised £120 for the charity and Sarah thanks everyone who took time out of their day to come along, to Rosie for her baking and for everyone’s generous donations.
