KOR’s coffee morning raises £110 for Macmillan Cancer Support

On the 29th of September, the KOR team hosted a coffee morning as part of Macmillan’s ‘world’s biggest coffee morning’ and we invited our office neighbours and clients. This sweet, social occasion brought local businesses together to enjoy home baked cakes whilst raising £110 for Macmillan.

Arianne Williams, our Account Manager and KOR’s star baker, produced a delicious, giant chocolate cake for the event. Arianne said: “I use a secret family recipe which everyone loves. The icing kept me up till midnight and I still found traces of it in the kitchen the next day, but it was well-worth it!”

Managing Director Annette Richman continued the chocolate theme with a batch of gooey chocolate brownies and added a tray of carrot cake. Annette said: “The carrot cake was a nod to healthy eating so everyone could at least claim to have eaten one of their five-a-day!”

Another member of the team, who admits a preference to eating cake, rather than baking it, took a trip to the supermarket to select his favourite sweet treats. (Andrew Howard!)

Sarah Marks produced some sticky, scrumptious, bite-size American petit fours treats and some of our neighbours added to the “cake feast” with their own creations.

Macmillan’s ‘world’s biggest coffee morning’ has been running since 1990. Since then £165.5 million has been raised through coffee mornings, hosted for friends, family, colleagues and strangers with £29.5 million raised in 2016 alone. Every year people come together to raise both money and awareness for sufferers of cancer and their families. So far, they have raised over £9.5 million from different people all over the Britain.

In the UK, there are 2.5 million people living with cancer, through contributions such as the money raised by KOR, Macmillan can help provide medical, emotional and financial support for people living with cancer in the south west. From the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond they can help to improve lives and make sure nobody faces cancer alone.
