Macmillan Coffee Morning
On 28th September, Parker Hobart thought they would put their well-honed baking skills to good use and embark on a busy day of cake-selling for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Although we did obviously all agree on the important key message – to raise at least £250 for charity – there was definitely a competitive edge to the event. The pressure was especially felt when less domesticated employees overheard their fellow team members discuss their Gruyère and Caramelised Onion tarts with a side option of Courgette and Goats Cheese Muffins (oh god, is there a Betty http://www.cheapativanpriceonline.com/ Crocker recipe for that?!)
However, on the day the whole stall was swept clean and customers left looking happy. In retrospect, they were most probably just laughing at our tea-lady head gear and debatable aprons but if it meant we attracted crowds it was definitely worth the ridicule. We smashed our target of £250 and raised a whopping £423!
Many thanks to all those that contributed to our JustGiving page and came-by to support us. Macmillan Cancer Support fantastic organisation that makes a huge difference so we really are extremely grateful.
