The Jones Harris team joined thousands of other groups all over the UK in September 2018 in fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Relief. It was the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and £128.68 was raised during the day. A great effort from a relatively small team of people for an amazing cause.
It was also a good chance for everyone to catch up with Jemma from the bookkeeping team who is currently on maternity leave. She came along with her gorgeous little 3 week old baby, James. Sarah also brought her little boy along who is nearly 3, and he made crispy cakes and sausage rolls.
Fun in the office – fundraising for Macmillan
The fundraising took place in reception, where the display of delicious cakes and savouries was rapidly polished off by our hungry team of accountants! The enthusiastic cooks and bakers among the team contributed home-made food, including the very indulgent and enormous (but delicious) chocolate drizzle cake brought in by star baker Rachel. Some of the less culinary talented ones among us opted to bring along shop bought versions.
Of course it wouldn’t have been a Jones Harris fundraiser without a few office games. They were provided in the official fundraising pack, and included a raffle, ‘stick the cherry on the gateau’ and ‘guess the length of the sausage roll’!

The icing on the cake (so to speak) was an extra £207.41 to send to Macmillan with our own money, raised by Poulton C of E St Chad’s school, which Rachel’s daughters attend.
All in all it was a very pleasant (and tasty!) way to have fun and raise money for a great cause.
