We're all busy, but just now and again it's good to put something back - especially if it is to benefit a brilliant cancer care charity which every one of us will be touched by at some point in our lives.
Yes, it was Macmillian's World's Biggest Coffee Morning again last week and we were delighted to be able to hold our Further 'Coffee Hour' here at The Old Church again.
Not only did our neighbours within building come and join us as usual, but a few clients and suppliers turned up with their generous donations,too. One lovely client donated a wholesome amount without attending - thanks Jamie and the team at Claxtons for that.
When the well-fed and watered visitors finally left about two hours on, a mini 'cake mountain' still remained, so there was only one thing for it. Yes, Lou and Fran decided to waltz over to the building site over the road, trays in hand. Of course, there was no resisting their charms, or their Vienese Whirls!
Thanks go, as always, to our Chief Organiser and Fundraiser Annette - and to all those in the Further team for baking, buying and bringing in their creamy sponges, rocky roads, carrot cakes and Further-branded macaroons.
£264 (and still coming in) is an admirable effort for such a small event. We'll hopefully see more of you here next year to help us raise the bar again.
