Spectra staff continue to support vital charities
Staff at Spectra recently showed their charitable side by staging their sixth consecutive coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Following last year’s successful event, several staff members took time again to bake an array of cakes, buns, scones and pastries, all gratefully enjoyed by fellow employees who made cash donations to Macmillan Cancer Support.
As with previous years, the management team at Spectra happily matched the final amount in recognition of the staff's efforts.
Spectra's Managing Director Joe Maynard said, “We are always hugely impressed with the lengths our staff go to in order to support a number of worthwhile charities. They continue to do it in their own time and off their own back and that can only be applauded”.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
Bringing millions of people together for coffee and cake each September, Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has become a British institution over the years, with thousands of events happening up and down the country
Regarded as Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, national coffee morning donations from last year alone raised over £27 million, illustrating how vitally important events such as these are to major charities who continue to help people facing cancer.
The first ever Coffee Morning happened back in 1990 and since then the annual event has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Other charitable staff efforts
This latest endeavour is just one of many charitable events that have been organised by Spectra staff over recent years.
These include baking and dress down days for Children in Need, Christmas Jumper events for Save the Children, and more recently fundraising for Operation Christmas Child.
Staging their third Operation Christmas Child event in the coming weeks, Spectra staff will be filling shoe boxes with donated useful items and toys for Samaritan’s Purse.
Samaritan’s Purse is an international relief and development organisation working to help communities in countries across Sub-Saharan Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia. It’s not too late to get involved with this excellent clarity and details are available on their website at https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk
