Here at Asbestos Justice we are passionate about supporting Macmillan Cancer Support. Not only do we donate money from our successful asbestos claims to the charity, we also partake in other fundraising events to assist Macmillan with the valuable work they provide for our clients.
On Friday 30th September we took part in Macmillan’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Our colleagues had done an amazing job baking cakes, biscuits and tasty treats to sell. Everyone was looking dapper as we had all paid to dress down for the day as well.
Cakes were on sale throughout the day and there was a marvelous selection of butterfly cakes, brownies, shortbread and even a chocolate orange cheesecake!
The real fun came at lunchtime. Our staff room was transformed into a haven of Macmillan green. In keeping with the theme of the day we had cake bingo and a ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’ competition, the winner was Matthew who was the closest to the weight of 3.1kg!
Finally, we voted for ‘Best Baker’ and Harriett was thrilled to bits to win the coveted badge and cookbook prize.
It was a fantastic event to be a part of and overall we raised £207.24. The Macmillan Coffee Morning is such an easy way to raise much needed funds for such a worthwhile cause.
Head of Industrial Disease, Helena Cameron was extremely pleased with the day and stated:- “A huge thank you goes out to all that participated in this annual event which has raised millions of pounds for such a fantastic charity. We have been working closely with Macmillan for many years and are proud to say that we have helped to raise over £26,000.00 for the charity to date. Long may their excellent work for all those diagnosed with asbestos related diseases continue.”
Macmillan provide invaluable support for people with cancer and their families. We have heard from numerous clients who have suffered with mesothelioma and other conditions, who have received vital assistance from the charity.
