Charity begins at home in Bathgate.

03 October 2014

Bakers and coffee lovers at our East Scotland office pulled together to help raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support’s as they took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Our team at Persimmon Homes East Scotland baked, iced and lovingly decorated a mountain of cakes for their colleagues to enjoy on 26th September all in aid of the companies chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

The team of bakers, led by Kirsty Edwards, Stephanie Timmins and Michelle Allen, sold tea, coffee and home-made cakes raising £352.38 for the annual charity event.

Jim Kirkpatrick, managing director at our East Scotland office, said: “I am extremely proud of my teams’ dedication and hard work in raising money for Macmillan. The entire office turned out to enjoy the fabulous treats and everyone dug deep to donate.

“There are more than two million people living with cancer in the UK so every penny is vital to help Macmillan continue to provide practical, medical and emotional help to those affected by the disease.”

World-wide the event raised over £20 million in 2013 with over 154,000 people signing up to organise a coffee morning.

Coffee morning organiser at our East Scotland office, Kirsty Edwards, added: “It feels very special to be part of such a fantastic fundraising event and raising over £350 is the icing on the cake.”

Fundraising for Macmillan is nothing new for Persimmon Homes with a constant flow of events throughout the year including a golf event that raised over £8,000 in April.
