Hounslow Highways raises £500 for Macmillan

1 Oct

Tables full of cakes, scones, slices and cupcakes enticed Hounslow Highways staff to dig deep and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support on Monday (29 September 2014).

Hounslow Highways raises £500 for Macmillan

The delicious home-baked and shop bought goodies helped raise £502.03, surpassing the target of £500 as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Staff could buy tea and coffee for £0.20 and cakes started from £0.50. Other larger donations were also made.

Hounslow Highways Insurance Officer Angela Ames organised the day, setting up the Jubilee House training room from 7am!

Angela said: “Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity close to my heart. They are a worthwhile charity as they help people all over the UK who face cancer, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond. It was also a good excuse for everyone to chat with each other over a coffee and cake. It was a great success and we hope to do something similar soon – although on a smaller scale!”

Hounslow Highways Service Director Rob Gillespie said: “We are very pleased to be able to support such an important charity and our morning tea was a huge success.

“It goes to show how many of our staff have a bit of a sweet tooth!”

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event and in 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million.

The money raised goes towards people living with cancer and ensures they are not alone throughout their diagnosis.
