Cakes (and confectionary in general) are not a rare sight in the PLBR/Real Science office. Birthdays, festive periods, post-holidays, or just whenever someone is feeling generous – we can always find an occasion. No day, though, compares to the 25th of September: the day of the Macmillan Coffee Morning.
UK charity Macmillan provides specialist healthcare and support for people with cancer, and each year it organises the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ to build awareness and fundraise. The concept, widely celebrated across the country, is simple but effective: bake a cake, enjoy cake with friends/family/colleagues, and donate money for each piece you eat.
This year, all three teams combined baking and eating abilities. As it’s for a good cause, gluttony is encouraged, not frowned upon. And with our brilliant bakers and… consumers, we were sure to succeed. Take a look at our fantastic feast:
By the end of the day, we had raised £165.25 for Macmillan. Surely a great testament to our eating abilities! Well done everyone!
