Thames Valley step back in time to raise money for Macmillan

Archived: Posted October 2, 2015

Generous staff and carers from our Thames Valley region held a 1950s themed coffee morning to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.

FCA Thames Valley region hold 1950s fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer SupportDressed to impress in fabulous 1950s attire, our Fostering Service Manager Lisa Marshall was awarded the prize for best outfit, whilst Olwyn Skinner, Operations Manager, and Robert Withers, Senior Administrator, picked up prizes for their superb baking and cake decorating skills.

The event proved popular not only with our current carers but also with four new carers who attended the coffee morning, completed their initial enquiries and booked in their first home visit on the day itself!

Altogether the team raised £139.34 for this great cause.

Kelly Ludlow, Marketing Co-ordinator for Thames Valley, said: “Our carers and staff could certainly give the contestants on ‘The Great British Bake Off’ a run for their money! The effort everyone put into the coffee morning was incredible, and as well as raising money for Macmillan it proved to be a great social event for all those involved with Foster Care Associates in the region. A massive thank you to all who were involved in making the day so successful.”
