Macmillan’s Biggest Coffee Morning at Crewe Lifestyle Centre
Cake and Coffee was on everybody’s mind last Friday. There was over 200 people who came down to the Macmillan coffee morning at Crewe Lifestyle Centre on Friday 30th September.
Everybody employees and staff from the onsite Taste for Life Café had the challenge to make yummy cakes to be sold to raise money for the cancer charity and also be in with a chance of being crowned a ‘Star Baker’.
Baking Judge and Leisure Assistant at Crewe Lifestyle Centre Zac Garner, commented, “it was a close competition and all the donated cakes tasted amazing. No one was disappointed and there were certainly no soggy bottoms!”
Although fun was had during the morning, the aim was to raise money and awareness of Macmillan Cancer Support and the care they provide for those diagnosed with cancer and their families. The event was also an opportunity to raise awareness of the Macmillan Move More Exercise classes that take place at Crewe Lifestyle Centre.
Everybody Healthy Lifestyle Coach Kevin Morris commented, ‘This was a fantastic opportunity to promote and show the public the support we offer for clients who have been touched by cancer. Our McMillian Move More exercise classes that run at the Crewe Lifestyle Centre, Macclesfield and Wilmslow Leisure Centres give clients the advantage to reduce risk factors that can lead to cancer and can holt progression of the illness and therefore improve their quality of life.”
The very competitive Everybody staff bake-off meant that lovely homemade cakes were later sold to the public to raise money for the cause with lifeguard and swimming teacher Emma winning ‘star baker’ with her beach theme lemon with lime cake.
With a wide range of yummy cakes and hot drinks available, a total of £260.67 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
There are more than 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK alone.
