An Elsham-based business has teamed up with Macmillan Cancer Support to offer a tasty treat for fundraisers.

Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event takes place this month and The Pastry Room is giving away 10 easy bake butter scone kits to registered organisers

“We are delighted to be working with Macmillan and helping with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning,” said Managing Director John Hendy.

“We only launched our butter scones in spring and have created a Macmillan scone kit specifically for the event.”

Each kit consists of enough scone mix to make 100 scones, along with jam and clotted cream to accompany them; bakers just need to add eggs and milk.

“I am thrilled to have the support of the guys at The Pastry Room, and the kit’s they have donated are fantastic,” said Macmillan’s fundraising manager in Lincolnshire, Jamie Davenport.

“This will be a great reward for people who want to raise even more money for Macmillan this year, and could take a lot of pressure off preparation times for their coffee morning.”

The official event day for the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Friday September 26, but Macmillan says it is happy for people to hold their coffee morning on a day that suits them.

Applications for the kits can be made up to midday on September 19, email with your name and address and state ‘I would like the scone kit because....’ The responses will be judged by Macmillan and The Pastry Room, and successful supporters will be notified by the end of the day.
