Tasty treats at legal firm

Staff from Martin-Kaye LLP Solicitors took a tasty break for elevenses to raise vital charity cash as part of this year's World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

Organiser June Noto, who co-ordinated the efforts of everyone involved to bake the cakes for the legal practice's event, said: "We wanted to encourage as many people to donate to Macmillan Cancer Support as possible, so we created a whole host of treats for people to try.

"Everyone has been incredibly generous and we're hoping to have raised a great amount for the appeal, which makes such a difference to people's lives.

"At Martin-Kaye, we're always keen to support charities in the local area, and we felt that taking part in an event like this would be an excellent opportunity for staff to mingle and raise money for a good cause at the same time."

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fund raising event and it has been held since 1991. 

At the first national event, 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country, and since then, the project has raised over £60 million for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Last year 51,000 people signed up and raised a record £10 million. Organisers are hoping to raise even more this year, to help change the lives of people affected by cancer.
