Hounslow Highways raises £500 for Macmillan

Posted on: July 11, 2019 at 2:10 pm

Tables full of cakes, scones, slices and cupcakes enticed Hounslow Highways staff to dig deep and raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support on Monday (29 September 2014).

The delicious home-baked and shop bought goodies helped raise £502.03, surpassing the target of £500 as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Staff could buy tea and coffee for £0.20 and cakes started from £0.50. Other larger donations were also made.

Hounslow Highways Insurance Officer Angela Ames organised the day, setting up the Jubilee House training room from 7am!

Angela said: “Macmillan Cancer Support is a charity close to my heart. They are a worthwhile charity as they help people all over the UK who face cancer, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond. It was also a good excuse for everyone to chat with each other over a coffee and cake. It was a great success and we hope to do something similar soon – although on a smaller scale!”

Hounslow Highways Service Director Rob Gillespie said: “We are very pleased to be able to support such an important charity and our morning tea was a huge success.

“It goes to show how many of our staff have a bit of a sweet tooth!”

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event and in 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million.

The money raised goes towards people living with cancer and ensures they are not alone throughout their diagnosis.
