Cakes for cash at coffee morning

The Acklam Green Centre and Resource Centre recently took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 28th September, raising £244.00 in valuable funds for Macmillan Cancer Care in the process.

Actes staff and generous members of the public, baked and created an array of cakes and goodies including rocky road, fairy cakes, cookies, truffles and scones which were exchanged for cash donations. 

Event attendees also took part in the Place the Cherry on the Gateau game and You’re on a Roll sweepstake which added to the donations. Simon Carson Sports School donated a football as one of the prizes while the Acklam Green Centre donated a lunch voucher.

The events took place simultaneously at Café Connect in Acklam Green Centre’s atrium and in the Resource Centre’s reception area.

Donna Smith, facilities manager at Actes, said: “With a large staff team and two centres open to the public we were ideally placed to host a Macmillan Coffee Morning to raise funds and help make a difference to people facing cancer. 

“Everyone made a fantastic effort with their baking and we were pleased that so many people turned out to donate and enjoy a yummy treat or two in the process. We’re thrilled to have raised £244.00 for this fantastic cause and I’d like to thank everyone involved.”
