GALLERY: Comet country Macmillan coffee mornings
OFFICES, homes and shops across Comet country have been helping to make Macmillan’s annual coffee morning a steaming success today (Friday).
One of the biggest events was held in Stevenage town centre, where cakes and pastries donated by local cafes were sold. The hot weather helped to make the day successful, compared to last year’s rain and wind.
In The Comet offices, editor Darren Isted’s cakes went down a storm, with �128.22 raised to go to the charity.
North Herts District Council also held a coffee morning at the council offices in Letchworth. This was hosted by chairman Cllr Michael Weeks and proved to be a huge success, raising over �320.
Barclays in Stevenage held an event, with a raffle as well as a range of hot drinks and homemade cakes on offer.
Morrison Utility Services also supported the cause, by holding coffee mornings in their Stevenage, Hitchin and Arlesey offices. Staff in the Stevenage branch held a bake-off, with The Comet work experience volunteer, Maria Richardson, judging the winner. They estimate to have raised over �150 for the charity.
All money raised across the area and in the country will go towards supporting people affected by cancer by providing them with financial grants.
