Linda of Millbrae House, Rockcliffe and Lynn of Birchlea Lodge in Kippford got together and held a Macmillan "Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning" event last Thursday in Rockcliffe.
|The cakes, scones, cup cakes, tray bakes and cookies all laid out... where do I start?|
"Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. Macmillan is here to make sure no one has to go through it alone. Whatever you raise, you will be helping to improve the lives of people affected by cancer across the UK."
A huge thank you also goes to the friends, neighbours and family who came along and donated, the people who donated items for the fabbie Raffle Prize and especially the two spouses in the kitchen who washed and dried with gusto! Well done chaps, nice one!
The cakes were made by Linda, Lynn and their Mums (aren't Mums brilliant!) and were absolutely delicious.
Around 23 people came despite the rain and enjoyed the scrummy home baking and fairtrade coffee. Our local ukulele group DUKES also supported the event by purchasing raffle tickets and Colvend Shop sold some of the cakes too. These, including the very generous donations and raffle ticket sales at the coffee morning, raised an amazing total of £300.49 for Macmillan.
|My favourite was the chocolate Louche (forground) |
but I managed a slice the carrot cake on the stand too. Top marks!
|Locally made and produced items for the Raffle were donated by friends and family.|
