Designing websites and developing mobile apps can be thirsty work. That’s why we admit to being partial to a good coffee here at Image+ Towers … and it’s even better when a cup of joe can help a good cause, as well!
On Friday 27th September, we hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning at our Electric Wharf HQ in Coventry. We’ve often built websites for charity, and trying to give something back is a big part of what we like to do as a business – this seemed a great way to do it.
Not only do Macmillan coffee mornings offer an ideal opportunity to raise some money for a fantastic cause; they also give businesses like ours the opportunity to invite some of our clients over to the office and get to know them a bit better over a cuppa and a piece of cake. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Nationwide last year, Macmillan coffee mornings have raised more than £26 million for this fantastic charity, and that alone is evidence enough that they’re a superb idea. This year, 27th September was the date for the country’s biggest coffee morning – and we were proud to do our bit!
We served coffee and tea, of course, but also chocolate brownies (very popular, it has to be said!), cupcakes, gypsy toast, carrot cake and much more. Many of the treats on offer had been baked by Image+ staff; coffee mornings are a great way to test out the kitchen skills of your colleagues!
One in two of us will face cancer at some time in our lives, which makes Macmillan a charity for everyone … it only makes sense to contribute. The first coffee morning was held in 1990, and since then events across the country have raised in excess of £200 million.
We’re happy to have become part of that long tradition, and have made our donation to Macmillan with pride! Plus, if anyone needs a great recipe for chocolate brownies …
