Bake-off and coffee morning in aid of Macmillan
Origins restaurant at Shrewsbury College threw open its doors today for members of the public to enjoy coffee and cake, in the name of charity.
As part of Macmillan’s biggest annual coffee morning’s 25th anniversary, Origins restaurant, hosted a coffee and cake morning, which raised a fantastic £452.39!
Cakes were made and brought in by staff from across the college and Catering and Tourism lecturers and the restaurant’s Manager, went head-to-head in a bake-off!
Ted Coxon, Manager at Origins Restaurant, said: “We wanted to do something ‘extra’ for this year’s Macmillan coffee morning. So Catering tutors Steve Poole, Mark Johnson and Dan Gibbons and Tourism tutor, Wayne Hull and myself, made our ‘showstopper’ cakes, which were judged by Assistant Principal, Catherine Armstrong. The winner was, Catering Lecturer, Steve Poole
“Steve received title of “winner” for his decadent fruit cake. The cakes that we made were added to the cake sale. This is a fantastic cause which we were more than happy to help with and we would like to thank Helen Knight, the Macmillan representative for Shropshire, in supporting our event.
In 2014 Macmillan raised a record breaking £25 million from the coffee morning and this year Macmillan are hoping to raise even more! Estimating that over 220,000 people across the UK will register to hold a coffee morning, with over 6 million cups of coffee and 12 million slices of cake due to be consumed.
