Last week we held our RKH Cake and Coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support’s National Coffee Morning on 28th September. What could be better than raising lots of money for a great cause, all whilst getting to eat homemade cake and treats? It’s every RKH’ers dream - we’re pretty well known for our love of both making, and eating, delicious food!
Many of us have been touched by the care Macmillan provides and wanted to help give something back to the charity. After a morning of eating cake, playing themed games and enjoying a hot drink or two, we managed to raise an amazing £400 for Macmillan.
Rachel and Georgia from PR organised the whole thing, getting each department involved in baking some delicious cakes and snacks, including homemade chocolate truffles, an unusual grapefruit drizzle cake, freshly-made bread (baked right here in the office!) and a whole host of other treats. The girls also made the entire office a special round of hot drinks, including tea, coffee and their signature hot chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows and flake chunks.
During lunch break we all headed upstairs to our break-out area to play silly games including ‘place the cherry on the gateau’ and ‘guess the length of the veggie role’. And what’s a coffee morning without a bake off? Each baker was scored on their bake and given points out of 5 by our panel of judges. Prizes were given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, with the top prize being a cake stand and winners badge. PR Account Manager, Alanna scooped 1st prize, Account Manager Katie was awarded 2nd prize and PR and Social Media Executive Conor took home 3rd prize.
We all had such a great morning and headed off home feeling full to bursting with incredible homemade food. We hope the money raised will help make a real difference to Macmillan and the people they support.
