There was coffee (and tea!) aplenty for everyone at Brompton this year, when the Court joined in with the rest of the Nation to fundraise in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan’s Cancer Support… And what a fabulous morning it was! Cake galore, various competitions to win a bottle of Champagne, Whisky, a ‘Guess the Weight of the Cake’, a wonderful array of beautifully wrapped gifts to purchase and some great raffle prizes too! From beauty treatments, to complementary meals in restaurants, to chocolates and even a free MOT for some lucky car owner!
Mrs Hack, who has been the driving force of this event for a number of years now, was so delighted that once again the generosity of so many of the Court Owners and Staff, their friends & families, meant that the total raised this year was in excess of £1,400.00.
An outstanding achievement, considering the current challenges that so many are facing. A huge thanks to everyone involved, especially to Mrs Shieldhouse who donated so many of the home-made cakes on the day, to “Judy’s Jams” who again has been so amazingly generous with all the jams she has made this year and to all the Staff for their support here at Brompton, with special thanks on the day to Carl, Suzie, Nicola, Claire, Kimberley & Mariza.
A very successful Macmillan coffee morning was held at Eddington Court in Weston-super-Mare today. Over 60 residents and their guests enjoyed an excellent variety of stalls including cake sales, a raffle, bric-a-brac and tabletop games.
Over £500.00 was raised through sales and donations. Well done to everyone involved.
On Friday 24th September the residents at Eastbank Court came together to take part in Macmillan’s biggest coffee morning. Friends and family from outside the court also came along and there was a lovely atmosphere throughout.
Mr Graham ran a tombola with residents donating prizes, there was a great selection on offer and everyone that had a go was a winner!
Olga and Stacey (our amazing cooks) produced some fantastic cakes which the residents enjoyed on the day as well as purchasing more to take home with them.
We played ‘guess the number of sprinkles on colin’ which was won by Mrs Price. She donated her winnings straight back to Macmillan. Mr Graham also won a quiz, and his prize was a special Macmillan Colin the Caterpillar which he very kindly gave to the staff to enjoy.
All the efforts made by the staff, residents and their family and friends resulted in us raising £727.56 for Macmillan Cancer Support. A great effort which will help Macmillan to continue the great work they do!
We had a great time at Farthing Court on Wednesday 22 September for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and raised £175.00 for Macmillan Cancer Research. The owners played a game and had a cup of tea with some lovely cakes and scones donated by the staff.
One of our owners, Mrs Lindsay, organised Alston's Macmillan Coffee Morning, and we supplied teas served by a glamourous assistant. The event raised £352.50.
We held our MacMillan Coffee morning today, which was very busy with lots a cake eaten, and a brilliant sum of £330 raised!
We held our Macmillan coffee morning this morning; some lovely cakes were donated and so far we have raised £169.51.
We would like to thank Mr Griffin for creating this magical place. It has been admired not only by fellow owners and staff but also guests visiting our court. You are always there tending to your flowers and happy to stop and have a chat. Your hard work has certainly paid off.
Another successful and well attended evening. According to Dr Hawkins, owner at Deercote Court, it was the greatest fish and chips ever; followed by Dog Racing, enjoyed by all. Congratulations to the lucky winners.
