We have hosted another successful Macmillan Coffee Morning at the Advance TRS Guildford office this year. Everyone supported the fundraising morning by bringing in delicious bakes and generously donating for a great cause and we were able to raise £104, which is more than double last year’s sum.
With so many of our colleagues providing amazing cakes and pastries this year we will need to think about a marathon as our next fundraising challenge, to run off all the calories!
While we were really impressed with everyone’s effort, it was Leanne’s Salted Caramel Sponge Cake that took the crown this year – a well deserved Paul Hollywood handshake for you Leanne! Well done to all our bakers.
