Big Coffee Success

Staff at Board Headquarters in Carseview House were invited by Managed Clinical Network Project Officer Andrene Keith and Sexual Health/Blood Borne Virus Project Manager Ann McGregor to join them for a cuppa as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The magnificent spread of cakes included everything from chocolate gateau, cheesecake and carrot cake to home-made scones and rocky road.

The event, which also included ‘Guess the Number of Sweets in a Jar’ and a ‘Place the Cherry on the Cake Competition’ raised £455, and leftover goodies were delivered by Ann and Andrene to Strathcarron Hospice.

Another Macmillan Coffee Morning, which had been arranged at Forth Valley Royal Hospital, raised £687. People attended from all areas of the hospital but in particular staff from the Acute and Clinical Assessment Units. The organisers say they had wonderful support from staff, family and friends who donated, bought or baked, and are hoping the World’s Biggest Macmillan Coffee Morning will become an annual event.
