At PP, we love two things - eating, and doing stuff for good causes. Enter the Macmillan cake morning - which takes place on Friday the 28th September nationwide. People from all different companies, organisations, groups, families and friends can get together and share a slice and a cup of tea, for a donation to the cause.
Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity which helps people who are affected by cancer - whether you’ve just been diagnosed, are in treatment, finished treatment or you know someone with cancer - Macmillan are there for you. They provide help and advice, as well as support groups, an online community and free resources.
In the UK, it’s estimated that 2.5 million people are living with cancer (2015), and it’s set to rise to 4 million by 2030. Breast cancer is among the most common. One in two people will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. With this in mind, it’s something that has, at some stage, affected all of us. Therefore, it’s even more crucial that we help them get the funding they need
To get the ball rolling and in honour of the late Mary Berry, we decided to participate in a Playful Promises Bake Off! Our co-workers baked different goods and brought them along to the cake morning to be judged.
Here are some of the entries:
Let’s just say it’s a good thing some of us aren’t bakers!! We’re currently anxiously awaiting who will be crowned Star Baker…
We managed to raise £275!
A huge well done to all the PP team for participating and donating to the cause. If you want to donate, you can head to the Macmillan website and donate online, or why not hold your own coffee morning?
