A big thank you to Sharon and James, who kindly allowed the coffee morning to be held at JGS4X4. Although the official day was Friday 29th September 2017, we held ours on Saturday 30th September so everyone who works all week could have the opportunity to support such a great cause.
One in three of us will get cancer in our lifetime and it will be one of the toughest things we will ever have to face. Macmillan provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. Macmillan understand that cancer affects more than those facing it, they provide support for family and friends too.
We were very lucky having the weather be so kind to us on the day. I would like to say a huge thank you to my Mother Jan, who helped run the event. As well as a massive thank you to everyone everyone who baked and donated so many delicious cakes, with a huge range of different flavours, decorations and types – we have never seen so many cakes.
With people flowing from 10AM, it meant the car park soon filled up. Which allowed us to have a wonderful morning of conversations, laughter and lots of cake eating for a great cause.
After everyone had eaten as much cake as they could, here at JGS we donated some the leftover cakes to Finedon Church and others were sold for donations towards Macmillan Cancer. We would love to give you a total of what we raised… however donations are still coming in from generous people who unfortunately couldn’t’ make it on the day, so keep your eyes peeled for an update.
Once again, we would like to say a huge thank you from JGS, to those who supported, baked, donated and enjoyed the morning – we loved raising money for a fantastic cause.
