RbD's Macmillan Coffee Morning 2018

Last Friday, 28th September, we joined many people all over the country by hosting our own Macmillan Coffee Morning here at the Research by Design office. Macmillan Cancer Support is a nationwide charity that supports people suffering with all forms of cancer right from the moment of their diagnosis. They offer guidance, information and specialist help on all aspects of living your life with cancer and even work with governments to implement better cancer care throughout the country. Their work has had a significant effect on thousands of people’s lives and by running events such as this one we can contribute to keeping their impactful services going for many more years to come.

For the second year in a row, our team all got their best baking skills out for the occasion and produced some bakes that even Paul Hollywood might be impressed with (or at least warrant one of his firm handshakes). Some of these delicacies included a lemon drizzle cake, gluten free chocolate brownies, a chocolate orange cheesecake, pistachio and cranberry cookies, apple, carrot and raisin muffins and Malteaser slices. The office smelt amazing.

On a whole, the morning was a great success with plenty of coffees and teas being served and nothing but crumbs left at the end. It also provided a great opportunity to meet or catch up with people from the surrounding offices in our building that we don’t get the chance to on a regular basis, resulting in an enjoyable social morning fuelled by copious amounts of cake. Lizzie even bagged herself the award of ‘Star Baker’ for her chocolate orange cheesecake that went down a storm, leaving her proudly sporting a ‘Born to Bake’ badge for the rest of the day.

As a result, we managed to raise an impressive £117.45 in total for a brilliant cause, an amount that we are proud to donate to do our part in helping to make a difference. We would like to thank everybody who came, supported and generously donated on the day and, also, the Macdonald Burlington Hotel who kindly lent us some hot water flasks to keep the teas and coffees flowing!
