Kettles were working overtime on Friday as the Cycle Assist team joined staff at Thorneycroft Solicitors for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Cycle Assist and Thorneycroft Solicitors have been supporting the event for a number of years, but this is was the biggest yet, raising over £1,000.

Everyone in the team got involved, from organising and baking, to simply enjoying the coffee and cake in return for a donation to the charity. In fact the team’s  efforts didn’t stop at just cake, there were even home-made curry and chilli on offer; and a raffle with some great prizes provided by local companies including – Energie Wilmslow, M&S Macclesfield, John Lewis, Toy World Express, Peter Marcus Salon Manchester, Isoana Hair Design Chestergate, and Central Tyre & Auto Macclesfield.

In the afternoon staff were joined by the Macmillian fund raising team as well as Andy Bailey and the Silk FM cat from the local radio station Silk 106.7 to interview Thorneycroft Solicitors Director, Robert Thorneycroft, who stated:

‘As a local company employing over 150 people from the Macclesfield area, we recognise the importance of supporting events like these. Our staff and those from Cycle Assist worked really hard to organise this, and it was really well supported on the day – there was a great atmosphere and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. What a wonderful way to raise money for a very worthwhile cause that affects everybody in some way at some point in their lives.’

Once our team could eat no more, the remaining goodies were taken over to the East Cheshire Hospice to enjoy!
