It’s Cake – With a Difference

Cakes for macmillan fundraising Newcastle‘s Customer Service Assistant John Burns decided to organise a coffee morning with a difference! Ian Rothwell reports…

John was keen to support Macmillan and took it upon himself to support and organise the Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 26 September.

Rather than just standing in the canteen, John decided to take the ‘coffee and cakes’ to the masses and dressed up as Mrs Brown went round with a trolley serving the teams in Newcastle House.

A great effort by John and everyone enjoyed the ‘ moment ‘ !!

Around 60 staff joined in and John’s efforts raised £199.

Elsewhere, The Consortium‘s Trowbridge and Shrewsbury locations also held Macmillan coffee mornings. Sue Jones tells us what happened at Shrewsbury…

Ali Wright, pictured [above – Ed], did a very impressive Macmillan logo on her Torta Santiago.  Everyone tucked in and donated to this worthwhile cause raising a total of £134.

A big thank you to everyone who brought in goodies.

    I’m surprised it’s taken Mrs Brown so long to appear on Community LinkUp.
