Friday 30th September saw the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning take place in aid of a very worthy cause, Macmillan Cancer Support. In keeping with tradition, the PRG team got their mixing bowls and rolling pins out in true Great British Bake off style, creating a range of delicious treats. On the day, there was everything from rocky road bites to veggie rolls on offer, and even a large pink dinosaur cake on display, courtesy of PRG’s Account Manager Amy!
The PRG team were joined by local press for a photo opportunity before the sweet treats were demolished, with members of the web, account management and finance teams showcasing their delicious bakes. While some of the team admitted they didn’t quite have the culinary skills of the likes of Nigella, judging by the amount eaten at the event, the baking was a resounding success-Delia Smith, eat your heart out!
PRG ‘s clients and friends from across the Eastbourne business community and beyond came together to enjoy the tasty treats on offer, and as ever, donated extremely generously to the cause. Some of the local businesses in attendance included representatives from Handelsbanken, Barclays and PRG’s long standing client, The Let’s Do Business Group. Charity the Children’s Respite Trust, of which PRG Managing Director Simon is a long standing supporter, also marked the occasion by taking in a few fondant fancies with the PRG team.
As well as enjoying copious amounts of tea, coffee and indulgent cakes, there was also a ‘Guess how many sweets are in the jar’ competition. Despite beating off stiff competition, PRG’s Finance Manager Avril emerged victorious after guessing just a few jelly babies away from the correct answer of 80!
As well as being a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, the PRG team, along with generous donations from clients and local businesses raised a grand total of £248, a figure definitely not to be sniffed at! While the jury is still out over who should have been crowned winner of the bake off, one thing’s for sure, the PRG team are all still full of brownies and other goodies, with not a crumb left in sight!
Until next year, when the PRG team will channel their inner Mary Berry once again, on behalf of everyone at PRG, we would like to say thank you to everyone who came for their donations and of course, great company! See you next year!
