Coffee and cakes raise more than £1,600 for Macmillan

Published 2 October 2014

Brilliant WDH bakers helped make plenty of dough for Macmillan Cancer Support with a mixture of fund-raising events around the business that raised a total of £1,662.65.

At Merefield House, £625 was collected as dozens of people visited The Pavilion to try home-made cakes which had been entered into a ‘Bake Off’ competition. The contest was won by Marilyn Dye, Support Officer – Assets Control.

Stacey Rhodes, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Kirklees and Wakefield, called in to celebrate and many staff dressed down for the occasion.

The Improvements Team at Church Court Independent Living Scheme, Ossett, supported plumber Caroline Lewis in her first charity baking session as she put down her plunger and picked up her sieve to create a wealth of delicious cakes, custard tarts and scones. Caroline, 23, whose efforts raised more than £170 at the site where she is helping to carry out improvements, wanted to thank everyone involved.

at South Elmsall hosted an event where Wakefield Mayor Sandra Pickin, a Hemsworth councillor, joined the fun and helped to raise £260.

Similar events were held at WDH premises across the district. In the past our coffee mornings have raised more than £11,000 for the charity.
