On Friday 25 September our branches showed their community spirit as they welcomed visitors with tea, coffee and cake, in support of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. We had a great turnout and revealed some superstar bakers, all helping to gather donations for this worthwhile cause.
Thanks to a fantastic one team effort the Macmillan Coffee Mornings across the Society were a huge success and proved Skipton teams and customers want to give something back to their local communities and really make a difference.
We're pleased to announce that the grand total raised by Skipton Building Society is £4,498!
Take a look at some stories from our branches.
The team at Worcester set about making delicious cakes for the Coffee Morning, including triple chocolate brownie, white & milk chocolate crispy cakes and Lemon Drizzle cake on offer for customers.
A total of £41.63 was raised, and the day was enjoyed by all.
All the branch team at Dundee chipped in to bake, enlisting family members to help too. On Friday 25th, the kettle was boiled and they were ready to go!
Lots of regular customers joined them for a cuppa and a cake, they also had a donation from a local shopkeeper who had a cake delivered. Almost £60 was raised in total, a great achievement!
Scarborough once again stepped up to the challenge to raise money, and in aid of Macmillan the branch was decked out in green, and so were the team!
The team dressed in green and donated money to do so, they then spent the day selling cakes to their customers, really getting into the spirit of things.
Scarborough raised a fantastic total of £76.40.
Skipton Head Office
It wasn't just our branches that supported Macmillan, Head Office got stuck in too.
The Executive Assistants once again hosted a coffee morning at Head Office. Anyone visiting the Executive area was offered coffee and cake, which raised a huge total of £516.17, beating last years total.
Some of the team took a tour of Head Office with a trolley full of cake and raised a further £290.29.
The total raised by the whole of Head Office currently stands at a fantastic £1,636.26, and we're still counting!
