Fundraising takes the cake for Optimum professional services. Fancy a cuppa? The team at Optimum Professional Services did, when they ran a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Staff at the accountancy and law firm in Swindon baked or brought in cakes, made a brew, and took time out of their busy day to help the charity. In fact, they had so many cakes, they sold them over two days!
Macmillan supports people living with cancer. The organisation has been running its World’s Biggest Coffee Morning since 1990. This year, the official event takes place on September 29. But organisers can run coffee mornings whenever they wish. The coffee morning at Optimum, which raised £80 for the charity, is one of many regular fundraising events the team stages. Across the board they raise thousands of pounds. Every year, the business supports a local good cause. And this year is raising money for mental health charity Swindon and Gloucestershire Mind.
It’s our belief that it’s important to do our bit and give back to the community which we live and work in. That as well helping with national fundraisers like the Macmillan Coffee Morning,’ said Operations Director, Tracey Heath. ‘Plus, it’s fun to take part in, and a great way for the team to bond, and enjoy cake at the same time.’
