PETA holds Coffee Morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support

Article summary: PETA staff pulled together to host their own World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 26 September in aid of Macmillan, raising over £233 for this amazing cause!

Today is one of the World's Biggest Coffee Mornings: Macmillan Cancer Support.

Macmillan Cancer Support provides services for people living with cancer at every stage of their cancer experience, including emotional, practical, physical and financial support. They also raise money, influence decision makers, support the cancer workforce, research cancer care and help employers support staff.

Each year, Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raises millions of pounds to support the great work they do. The 2022 event raised over £12m and it is hoped that this year’s event total will be even higher.

On Tuesday 26th September 2023, we hosted our delicious Coffee Morning at PETA which saw a number of staff put their baking skills to the ultimate test and create some very yummy treats. As a little extra added fun, all cakes were entered into a contest judged by CEO Fiona Stilwell and Head of Operations Dawn Halfacre, who tried a little slice of each bake to crown an overall winner. Our treats included:

• Chocolate Orange Brownies
• Victoria Sponge
• Toffee and Caramel Extravaganza
• Chocolate and Salted Caramel Traybake
• Malteser Cake
• Lemon Cake
• Chocolate Cake

It was a very difficult decision for our judges as all bakes were a very delicious treat, but they did come to a decision. The cake that came out on top was a Toffee and Caramel Extravaganza which crowned our Recruitment Manager, Beth Bridgen as our Star Baker!

A big thank you to all staff involved in baking and donating. Altogether, we have raised £233.00 with donations still coming in. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Sharon Jenkins, Health and Safety Administrator who organised the entire event and ensured it was a great success!
