Fundraising is a piece of cake

Piece of cake

Fundraising is a piece of cake

Local residents in Gainsborough have been raising vital funds for a national cancer charity, with a little help from Acis Group and Galatia - An Acis Willmott Dixon Partnership.

Employees from the two companies held a coffee morning for residents at Pillared House sheltered housing scheme, as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Eager bakers from Galatia and Acis donated a number of cakes, which were sold to raise money for the charity’s support services. Employees also held a raffle during the morning and volunteered their time to help make the event a success.

The volunteers also visited Acis Group’s office in Gainsborough to sell cake and hot drinks, raising a total £215 that will be donated to the charity.

Macmillan Cancer Support helps improve the lives of people affected by cancer, providing individuals with medical, emotional, practical and financial support. The ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ campaign has been running since 1990 and last year 115,000 people signed up, raising a record £15 million.

Kathryn Murdoch, Galatia’s Customer and Community Officer, said: “This is the second time that we have supported Macmillan’s Coffee Morning campaign and we really wanted to beat last year’s effort of £150. The charity does such a fantastic job to support those affected by cancer and we’re happy to help raise money so that they can continue with their important work.”

Diane James, Scheme Manager at the Pillared House sheltered scheme, said: “The residents have really enjoyed the morning and we’re very grateful to Galatia for organising the event and providing such lovely cakes!”

Tanya Taylor, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “We’re grateful for all that Willmott Dixon have done to help with our ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ fundraising event. Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face and the money they have raised will help us to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.”
