Selesti Enjoy Coffee And Cake For A Good Cause
Here at Selesti we love any excuse to have cake! Our new Office Manager started the trend for bringing in baked goodies to celebrate joining the team - and with a few newbies having joined recently this soon escalated into a two-week long pig-out! But last week’s cakey celebration was for a whole different reason - to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support as part of their World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
Out came the Mary Berry cook books, aprons and mixing bowls and the Selesti team baked up a treat - in fact a whole table full of treats! We invited fellow office teams from the building to join us, requesting that they bought their pocket money and broke up their daily grind to help us raise money for those getting mugged off by cancer - and we are pleased to say that thanks to their support and the efforts of the Selestians, the event was a great success.
24 Years Old & Still Growing!
Macmillan's annual event started back in 1990 when a small fundraising committee arranged a coffee morning for people to meet and mingle, and donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan - little did they know that twenty-four years on their idea would be one of the biggest UK charity fundraisers. The scalable nature of this event undoubtedly contributes to its success - who doesn’t love an excuse for a cake and a natter - and raising money for this fantastic cause is just, if you’ll pardon the pun, the icing on the cake.
By close of business on Friday we had raised a huge £106.50 - surpassing our initial £50 target - with a more than generous donation coming in around midday from AFK Apparel.
Selesti & Charity
We work with a whole host of charities and not-for-profit organisations here at Selesti Towers, and having fun (cast your mind back to our Christmas Jumper day) is our way of giving back to the community in any way we can; and it’s fair to say we had a great time stuffing our faces to raise money. Macmillan are a wonderful charity who work endlessly to support those living with cancer, and the families too. If you’d like to donate to their fantastic cause then head to our JustGiving page and help our coffee and cake morning total keep rising - this is the calorie free way to get involved!
