Café Verde raise a whopping grand total for Macmillan Cancer Support!
On Friday 28th September, Café Verde hosted their very own Macmillan Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Lots of yummy cakes and bakes were made by staff of South Green Park and Poultec Training, who paid £2.00 for each bake to be entered into the ‘Staff Bake Off’ to raise money for the charity. After careful and very precise judging by Poultec’s very own catering tutor, the top prize was awarded to Anna Bales, Business Development Officer, for her Salted Caramel Banana Cake – it disappeared very quickly!
After the competition, the treats were then displayed and enjoyed by over 60 customers! As well as the cakes, teas and coffees, customers were entertained with games throughout the morning, such as ‘Pin the Cherry on the Gateau’ and ‘Guess the Length of the Veggie Roll’ – well done to the winners and thank you for donating and taking part.
Overall, the Morning was a huge success, and they managed to raise a magnificent total of £433.97, which has been donated to Macmillan Cancer Support!
Café Verde and staff at South Green Park and Poultec Training feel very privileged to have the opportunity to do something amazing for raising awareness of the implications of cancer on a person’s life, and feel that their support will go a long way in helping those affected by the disease.
