Simons celebrate Macmillan Coffee Morning
To celebrate the national Macmillan Coffee Morning, employees at Simons donned their baking aprons and embarked upon a bake off, raising over £360 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Mrs Helen Roberts, the proud mother of Mandy Green (our Lead Receptionist and Events Co-ordinator), kindly stepped in to act as the company’s answer to Mary Berry, judging the cakes and naming the winner.
Employees had the purpose of the day reinforced by Macmillan Representative Andy Rowston, who spoke to employees about his experience with cancer and the support Macmillan is able to provide thanks to fundraising efforts such as this. He said of the event, “It never fails to amaze me that people engage with Macmillan. It seems that many people I meet have their own cancer story; whether as a patient themselves or carer, or family member indeed. Please do not underestimate what your fundraising means to Macmillan, because in supporting Macmillan, you in turn support people like myself, for which I give you my heartfelt thanks.“
