MacMillan Coffee Morning

Wirral Partnership Homes held a coffee morning for residents and staff on Friday to raise funds for Macmillan Nurses and I was pleased to help out by bringing along some cakes to sell.

Wirral Partnership Homes is the largest registered provider of affordable housing on the Wirral, they formed in 2005 and work as a not profit organisation aiming to to work in partnership with residents and other organisations to build sustainable communities.

Macmillan Cancer Support help people affected by cancer, patients, families, carers and communities with practical, emotional and financial support.  They are such a worthy charity with the aim of reaching every person diagnosed with cancer no matter who they are, where they live or the type of cancer they have.  My Mother and closest friend were both affected by cancer so this is a charity very close to my heart and one I am always willing to support. 

It was a great day and well attended by residents and staff who raised over £200 for the charity.  I really enjoyed meeting everyone talking cake and getting to eat other peoples bakes for a change.  It's a brilliant way to raise money, everyone loves cake so who could resist. Thanks for asking me WPH. I wouldn't have missed it for the world x


  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the day. A friend held one here in Cramond, Edinburgh and it was a huge success. Everyone is happy to have a good excuse to indulge in a tableful of cakes. I made cardamom baklava and raspberry Viennese biscuits. What did you make?

  2. Great baking Yasmin. I have been baking for Macmillan too, our coffee morning isn't until Thursday.

  3. Kellie, I love anything with cardmom and baklava, can I have your recipe?
    In the end I made 200 pieces of cake - cupcakes, banana cake, lemon, victoria sponge, carrot cake......the list goes on x
