Macmillan Fund Raising

 The Offices of Richard Edwards Group again demonstrated their baking skills on Friday 24 September and hosted their fifth MacMillan Coffee Morning at the Halstead Office.

The sun shone so we popped some tables on our forecourt and offered an al fresco service for coffee and cake. Boxes of treats were flying out of the door and to date we have raised over £2,000 which will grow with gift aid.

Kind thanks to all who donated cakes and savoury treats and everyone who supported us.

Actively supporting the MacMillan 21 in 21 challenge last October, the Mighty Hike in July and most recently our Coffee Morning the practice has raised over £10,000 this year for the charity and we are completely overwhelmed by the support and generosity of everyone who has supported us.

Together we do make a difference. Thank You.
