Coffee Morning Success For Sheldon Davidson Solicitors
You may have spotted our Twitter feed full of delicious cakes last week, or read our blog and seen that we were busy baking, and of course eating a lot of cake!
Like many up and down the country, we hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning, and raised an impressive £141.11 with thanks to our wonderful staff.
I’m sure we would all agree here, we certainly had great fun getting involved, whether it was to bake the cakes to sell, or fill our stomachs with delicious treats and copious amounts of coffee. What’s more important; we were able to raise vital funds for a charity who continue to work tirelessly in their goal to ensure that nobody faces cancer alone.
Sadly there are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer, by 2030 it is expected to be around 4 million, and this wonderful charity are on a mission to be there for each individual with cancer.
With the reality being one in three of us will sadly get cancer, at Sheldon Davidson Solicitors we firmly believe that raising money for cancer charities is an extremely important duty of both us as a company and our people. Just a few months ago we were extremely proud of some staff members taking part in the 5K Pretty Muddy Race For Life, and do all that we can to help these charities on a frequent basis.
For us, raising these funds knowing that we too are helping is extremely humbling. For each £27 raised, this will help pay for a Macmillan nurse to spend an hour with someone who has just been told that they have cancer.
The annual event has proved extremely popular for Macmillan, with people taking part all across the UK, last year an incredible £25 million was raised!
