image010On the morning of Friday, 30th September, staff and customers across TruckEast branches got together to join in with Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

A cause that has touched many staff within TruckEast, the #worldsbiggestcoffeemorning is a fantastic way to celebrate the inspirational work that the team at Macmillan Cancer Support do and most importantly raise some funds.

At Stowmarket, Corby and Wellingborough branches numerous cake stations were set up with an array of delicious treats and cakes. Coffee and cake was available for staff and customers alike for a simple donation of their choice and the result was truly the ‘icing on the cake’ to a great morning.

To raise additional funds on the morning staff had the chance to enter the TruckEast ‘Cake Off’ where the delicious coffee and walnut cake by Kath Gore won over the panel of judges from Scania Great Britain. Other fundraising across the group included dress down and a game of guess the sprinkles.

Marketing Manager, Jessica Webb comments “The funds raised were clearly a sign that cakes really do taste better together and we were delighted to supply Macmillan with the cheque for £1,023.80.”

TruckEast would like to thank everyone that got involved – whether that was a baking marathon the night before, indulging way past their limits or through a simple donation gesture.image011
