The Granny Annexe team had a lot of fun taking part in Macmillan’s Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning on the 26th September, raising money for such a good cause. As it was the World’s Biggest Coffee morning, we couldn’t help but bake tons of baked goods and serve pots of tea and coffee to celebrate.
The coffee morning kicked off around 9.45am, where the team laid out their freshly baked wares. Our Managing Director Stuart Anderson took on the guise of ‘Paul Jollywood’ (instead of the legendary baker Paul Hollywood from the Great British Bake Off), to judge all of the cakes and biscuits, where our Brand Executive Jessica won the bake off with her delightful coffee and walnut cake.
We also took advantage of the 2 competitions on offer with Macmillan’s information pack, where our Administrator Hannah and the Marketing and Sales Director James were lucky enough to win.
Our Designer, Mervyn took up our ‘Bake a Cake at Work’ challenge, where he had to make a cake from scratch using the office microwave. Mervyn’s lemon drizzle cake worked out pretty well, although needless to say, ‘Paul Jollywood’ didn’t dig the taste (or look).
The Coffee Morning was a great success, where we went round the local business park and sold the rest of our cakes to get more donations for Macmillan. More importantly, we raised a staggering £152.82 in just an hour!
