Council workers raising vital cash for charities

Staff at Malvern Hills District Council have been busy baking and selling cakes to raise money for charity.

Employees have raised over £150 for Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting a tea party as part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

The annual charity event took place on Friday (25 September) to help raise vital funds for Macmillan – the UK charity which supports people affected by cancer.

As part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning employees from across the council enjoyed a cuppa and a cake in aid of Macmillan.

Jack Hegarty, chief executive of Malvern Hills District Council, said: "Staff really enjoyed being part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning. They always make a huge effort, and I am delighted that we have been able to support the vital work that Macmillan Cancer do."

This is the latest charity fundraiser organised by staff. Employees also took part in Jeans for Genes Day this month to help raise awareness about Genetic Disorders. Staff raised over £77 for the charity Genetic Disorders UK by wearing denim for the day.
