It’s no secret that we love cake here at DRJ Accountants, so instead of doing just one coffee morning, we decided to dedicate a whole week to fundraising and eating cake from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th October 2019!
A huge thank you goes to all of our bakers who donated their time and effort to help us raise money towards this worthwhile cause.
Last year we raised £61 but thanks to our hungry bellies, this year we raised an amazing £150!
Delicious bakes included:
- Chocolate Guinness Cake
- Chocolate Brownies
- Vanilla Cupcakes
- Lemon Drizzle Buns
- Triple Chocolate Cake
- Terry’s Chocolate Orange Cake
- Double Chocolate Cheesecake
- Sausage Rolls
- Victoria Sponge
…and many more!
In 2018, an incredible £26,914,382 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support from coffee mornings held all around the UK. The first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning was a small event with a simple idea and was held 29 years ago in 1990. After this initial small event was such a success, Macmillan did it again the following year, but this time nationally! Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan to help support those affected by cancer.
The harsh reality is that one in two of us will face cancer, so the incredible support of Macmillan’s workforce is necessary to everyone in the UK. They not only help the patient themselves, but they also offer support to the families and friends surrounding them in all sorts of ways: financially, medically, emotionally and physically.
