via Daily Prompt: Flattery
Sooo I held a McMillan Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for this very important charity last week, and raised more than I could possibly have imagined with friends and friends of friends.
With a bring and buy cake stall, raffle table, and some fun guessing games (supplied by McMillan) the event was a great success.
Upon leaving some of the guests said what a fantastic morning it had been and suggested another for this time next year. ‘Flattery will get you everywhere’, I said, and promised to do the same again next year.
I would love some reviews on my book ‘Over One Hundred Tips on Baking Cakes‘ and Amazon have an offer where you can preview some of my book for FREE, then I have a few days of FREE copies available on Kindle on Amazon from 9th-13th October, just click on the link above to head over to Amazon.
This morning I had a McMillan Coffee Morning with some friends (15 of us) and we were able to raise an amazing £240 for McMillan with our cakes and raffle.
My usual soggy orange cake was on offer with biscuits and tea or coffee.
Everyone arrived with their array of home made cakes and biscuits from carrot cake to cheese cake and muffins. We had a raffle and played the two ‘guess’ games that McMillan sent us and were all astounded when we added up our funds to find we had raised £240.00
I think it’s such an easy and fun way to raise money that once a year a day should be dedicated as ‘The World’s Biggest Fundraising Coffee Morning’ so that other charities could benefit and I think lots of money could be raised. If every business small or big held it as well, can you imagine how much money could be raised???
I will certainly do another one next year and hopefully raise even more money.
