Kingfisher’s coffee morning raises over £1,000 for charity

 

The real stars of the day at Kingfisher’s coffee morning at East Brent on November 4th were the incredible selection of homemade cakes that sold like......hot cakes.

 

From Victoria Sponge to Coffee and Walnut to Chocolate Fudge and beyond, the choice was bewildering; but almost everyone managed to overcome their bewilderment and dig deep into their pockets to raise money for Macmillan Nurses and Children’s Hospice South West.

 

Kingfisher MD Angie Hicks, herself a keen baker, was over the moon with the result, ‘Suppliers were so generous with their raffle prizes and donations that we were off to a flying start. Friends and customers were equally generous, and we are thrilled to be able to give two such worthwhile charities over £500.00 each’.

 

Visitors ranged from babes in arms to the over 90’s and, as might be expected at Kingfisher, there was a real family feel about the occasion.... with a colouring competition and a lucky dip providing plenty of fun and entertainment for children.

 

‘Everyone at Kingfisher put so much into the day,’ says director Michelle McQuarrie ‘and the outcome has given us a real lift.’
