The Swiis Foster Care Glasgow team hosted a coffee morning last month in our new meeting rooms upstairs for Macmillan Cancer Care. Lots of folk baked cakes and other goodies, and some even sourced professionally created masterpieces!
There were so many delicious things to choose from – including oreo chocolate brownies, crème egg millionaire shortbread, homemade tablet, sponge cake…. and plenty more. Some of the cakes were enjoyed with our coffee, whilst others were sold, and the beautiful professionally iced cake was raffled off – and turned into a birthday cake for a wee girl later in the week!
We were left with quite a surplus at the end of the morning, and decided to show some neighbourly love and share it amongst people in the surrounding offices – for a donation to the cause, of course! Some were friendlier than others… but all the cakes were enjoyed in the end.
The morning was a really nice chance for us to welcome carers into the office and spend some time with them, as well as with family and friends they brought along.
A huge thank you to all who came, brought cake, and helped us eat it all! We managed to raise a grand total of £191.16 – which is a great achievement, and was very gratefully received by Macmillan.
