Macmillan Coffee Morning
We held our first Macmillan coffee morning on Sunday 2 October – a great opportunity to eat cake, drink coffee and raise money for a fantastic cause in the process.
We had lots of competitions and opportunities for guests and the community to get involved. The ‘spot the cake’ competition was particularly popular, with Mr Alun Window winning the top prize. Alun very kindly chose to donate his prize money to Macmillan.
We also held a silent auction for cakes and a stay at the hotel. Our raffle raised £95, with the winners being contacted as we speak.
We wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who helped, provided prizes and of course all those that donated. They helped us raise a mammoth total of £728.88!
We were inspired by the generosity of the community, and inspired by some truly great cake. So much so that we will be introducing a range of homemade cakes in the hotel bar and restaurant, and, starting tomorrow, will be offering a free slice with every cup of coffee ordered in the month of October. Customers will be invited, completely voluntarily, to make a contribution towards Macmillan should they wish to do so.
