Kier brews up for charity
Staff at local maintenance company, Kier North Tyneside, made time for what matters in life by joining the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, to help raise nearly £600 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Kier North Tyneside, which carries out repairs and maintenance work on behalf of North Tyneside Council, also held the ‘Great Kier Bake Off’, which attracted 18 competitors from its Killingworth depot. The competition was fierce - but the three judges remained dedicated to finding a winner, leaving no cake untasted in their quest.
As well as the bake off, plenty of home baked goodies were brought in to sell, and staff and their families also donated prizes for a raffle.
Kier regional director for maintenance, Mike Furze, said: “We were delighted to support such a worthwhile cause - raising awareness of the work of the MacMillan nurses and the great work they do to support cancer sufferers and their families.”
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s flagship fundraiser, and has been taking place every year for the last 22 years. Over this time, supporters have hosted many record-breaking events – with coffee mornings taking place from the heights of a jet to the depths of a tin mine.
