Extra Care scheme’s coffee morning raises £270 for cancer charity


Staff at Watling Court hosted a coffee morning at the Extra Care Housing Scheme on Friday 29th September, raising £270 for Macmillan.




Tenants, their relatives, staff and friends of the Ifield Way housing scheme gathered in the lounge and dining room on Wednesday, to have a natter, tuck into some tasty treats, whilst raising money for an excellent cause.


All cakes were made or donated by staff of the scheme, the hungry group indulged in a variety of cakes, from ginger and coconut and lime to classic Victoria Sponge and chocolate cupcakes, whilst enjoying a cup of tea or coffee and a natter.


Tenants and their guests were also invited to get involved with a raffle and a competition, guessing the height of a cake, the winner took home a voucher for an afternoon tea for two at Tiny Tim’s in Rochester.


Helen Goulding, scheme manager of Watling Court, commented: “This is the third year we’ve hosted a coffee morning for MacMillan and it was a great success again, raising even more than last year.


“On behalf of everyone at Watling Court, I’d like to thank everyone who came along and bought a cake, in particular I’d like to thank the team at Tiny Tim’s Tearoom, for the prize they kindly donated.”
