Shropdoc raises funds for Macmillan with bake-off


Shrewsbury Town Crier Martin Wood kicked off our Macmillan Cancer coffee morning with a traditional ‘Oyez’.


The Town Crier also stepped up to judge the Shropdoc Bake-Off by tasting the cakes created by our amazing bakers!


A fantastic array of sweet treats was on offer at the coffee morning on September 28th, with lemon drizzle, carrot cake, banana loaf, cupcakes and more snapped up by staff and visitors to the site.


The winner of the Shropdoc Bake-Off was announced as Holly Robinson, administrator to the Clinical Team Leaders, with her winning gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate brownies.


More than £150 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Care during the coffee morning at the Longbow site in Shrewsbury.


Kayleigh Davies, Head of HR at Shropdoc, said: “We are so grateful to Martin, the Town Crier for coming along to our charity coffee morning and helping us to raise money for Macmillan.

“And to our fantastic bakers who created such wonderful and delicious bakes for us!


“Our teams work very closely with people who have been affected by cancer and their families, and it is a cause that is very important to us so it was great to see everyone turn out and enjoy a cuppa and a piece of cake as part of the fundraising.”

All money raised from the bake sale and coffee morning will go to support Macmillan’s vital work - funding Macmillan nurses, the Support Line and providing financial support to those suffering from cancer and their families.


The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning started in 1991 when more than 200,000 people took part across the UK. Now, the event raises millions towards Macmillan’s Cancer Support.


??Globally, cancer is the second-leading cause of death with 9.6 million people dying every year. However, around 3.7 million lives could be saved each year through early detection, prevention and treatment.
