It’s rapidly approaching one of our favourite times of year – yes, 30th September is our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning and we just can’t wait to do our bit for such a worthwhile cause.
Macmillan started its world-famous fundraising initiative 26 years ago back in 1990, and it has raised over £10M in charitable donations since then. We really can’t overstate what a worthwhile cause this is. There are currently over 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer, and that figure is on the rise. One in three people is expected to develop cancer at some point in their lives. Macmillan provides invaluable medical, emotional, practical and financial support to sufferers as well as their friends and family, and campaigns tirelessly for better cancer care.
We’ve been proud supporters of the event for a while now, and this will be our fourth year taking part. Every year we manage to raise more money; last year was our highest on record at a whopping £800. This year, we’ve got our sights set on smashing that £1000 barrier, and we need your help to do it!
As you’ll see from the tantalising photos, the range of cakes, biscuits and other scrumptious treats on offer is simply staggering. Truly, something for every taste (and probably a bit more!) Regular visitors include our lovely customers and suppliers, but also local residents from nearby villages, other local businesses and more. We welcome absolutely everyone to our event, so please do come along and see why this is one of our favourite events of the year.
It’s a great opportunity to meet the team, who will all be here on the day to give you a very warm welcome, and you can even have a tour of the factory if you like (even if it’s just to walk off that second slice of cake!) We’ll be handing out a few Victoire freebies as well, so you never know what you could end up with.
We’d love to see you here at Victoire on 30th September, 10am-3pm (1 Trafalgar Way, Bar Hill, Cambridge CB23 8SQ) to help us smash our “grand” target! You can just turn up, or it would be great if you emailed firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you’re coming.
Now to watch GBBO to whet our appetites – see you in September!
