New Directions took to the road in support of the Macmillan Coffee Morning Project. The campaign, aimed at raising awareness and funds for the cancer charity took place on Friday 28th September 2012. The team started the day with a warm up coffee and toast session at the Liverpool office before setting off to visit schools around the region.
Second stop of the day was Range High School who were pleased to receive coffee and cakes from Branch Manager Lisa Harper and Account Manager Emma Joyce.
Third stop was Stanley High school – Lisa and Emma dropped off more coffee and cakes. The school emailed to say they were doing the following: ‘Stanley High School staff met for a tea party over breaktime today to participate in the Macmillan Coffee morning. Cakes were baked and decorated by staff and retired colleagues came into host the tea party. Money is still coming in but we anticipate that we have raised over £150. Many staff and their families have been personally affected by cancer so this was a very special occasion for all.’
Final stop was Park Primary, welcoming Account Manager Jen Morrison and Lisa into the school where the pair donated more coffee and cream cakes for the day.
Speaking about their participation, Lisa Harper said ‘We are all delighted to support this very worthy cause. Although I am not sure I want to see another cake for a few weeks.’
The Macmillan Coffee morning saw businesses from all over the UK show their support by raising funds through cake sales and coffee consumption.
