Fundraisers in Sapcote, Leicestershire, are celebrating a £2,500 boost to cancer charity coffers with a little help from our Midlands region.
We donated 32 house-themed cupcakes created by The Vanillapod Cookery Company, plus one of its £50 vouchers for cake or party food, to local organisers joining in the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Care.
We’re building 128 homes in the village at The Limes so we wanted to give our backing to the event held in the Sapcote Village Pavilion. Visitors made a £1.50 donation for a cake and the chance to win the voucher.
The coffee morning also included a raffle and a range of giftware, jewellery and handicraft stalls. It raised over £2,500 and unsold cakes were donated to the village’s Langdale House care home.
Jenny Chapman, who helps to co-ordinate the Sapcote event, said: “Our huge thanks to Linden Homes Midlands for their generous donation, and for helping to make the coffee morning another success for the village – and of course the charity.”
Linden Homes Midlands sales director Clare Phillips added: “We were delighted to be able to support this great cause, and the cakes really did look fantastic. Our congratulations to the group on their fabulous fundraising effort.”
The benefits of buying new make the choice easy. Here are just a few:
