Raising money for Macmillan is a piece of cake
Ashford-based HR GO Recruitment marked the 25th anniversary of Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee Mornings with a week of cake-making and selling.
Many staff at the Wellington House, Church Road head office volunteered to make cakes, and those who didn’t were asked to donate to the charity by choosing from the appetising range of goodies on offer.
They were spoilt for choice, with a tasty array of delicious iced cup cakes, tempting chocolate sponges and attractive coffee gateaux.
The centrepiece was a large cake, made by Olivia Wacher, owner of Just One Cook in Canterbury – an HR GO client - with the letters HR GO emblazoned in black, blue and white icing.
Sarah Murphy, HR GO marketing executive, organised the fundraising celebration. “Nearly everyone was keen to put their cooking skills to the test and we’ve seen and tasted some delicious cakes,” she said. “We had great support from all staff in Wellington House, from those who baked the cakes and others who bought them.“
HR GO has arranged similar events in the past and raised hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Jack Parkinson, executive chairman HR GO, was delighted with the response. He said: “Macmillan is a very worthwhile charity that does so much good work for cancer sufferers and their families across Kent and beyond, and I’m delighted that so many staff got behind our baking project.”
