In a slight departure from all things green this post is more about the pink and news of some activity around a great cause.
All gallery staff were invited to a coffee and cake event in the staff room to raise awareness of Breast Cancer and raise money by making a donation for their refreshments. The event was well attended by all staff and there was a very generous atmosphere as everyone was spoilt for choice with a great range of cakes provided by the gallery bakers. Cakes included raspberry meringues, chocolate and banana loaf, pomegranate and jam cake, cherry scones, hazelnut and chocolate cupcakes, lemon and rum polenta cake and guinness and chocolate cupcakes.
Staff had fun completing the Pink Quiz. We raised a total of £82.82. Based on the success of the coffee morning, we hope to make this an annual event and raise even more money next year.
A huge thanks to all staff who made this successful including Leanne Lightfoot, Events Coordinator and the shop staff for supplying crockery.
Kate will pay the money into a bank, once the correct paying-in slip arrives. Then we will receive a certificate to stating how much we have raised.
