Fancy a cuppa? Our team at Optimum Professional Services certainly did, when they ran a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Staff at our accountancy and law firm, headquartered in Swindon, baked or bought in cakes, made a brew, and took time out of their busy day to help the charity. In fact, they had so many cakes, they sold them over two days!
Macmillan supports people living with cancer and has been running its World’s Biggest Coffee Morning since 1990. This year, the official event takes place on September 29, but coffee mornings can be held whenever organisers wish.
The coffee morning, which raised £80 for the charity, is just one of many regular fundraising events our team stages, which collectively raise thousands of pounds.
Every year, we support a local good cause, and this year are raising money for mental health charity Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind.
“We believe it’s important to do our bit and give back to the community which we live and work in, as well as to help with national fundraisers like the Macmillan Coffee Morning,” said our Operations Director, Tracey Heath. “Plus, it’s fun to take part in, and a great way for the team to bond, and enjoy cake at the same time.”
