The staff at Higgins Construction have been putting their baking skills to the test to support The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Staff were able to catch up with colleagues over a cuppa and enjoy a slice of cake, all in the name of charity. Staff at head office and at Higgins’ Gabriel Square site both took part and raised £1,156.14 for the charity. The team at Geron Way also bid on a fruit cake at £200 in the cake auction.
One in three people get cancer and Macmillan Cancer Support makes sure no one faces this alone. The charity provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. The first ever coffee morning was held in 1990. Since then the Coffee Morning campaign has raised over £138 million for Macmillan. Last year the charity raised £25 million and this year it hopes to raise even more.
Gabriel Square on London Road in St. Albans includes the design and construction of 80 residential homes and apartments around a raised central courtyard, with parking below and a public square and garden above. The homes will include 52 townhouses ranging from three to five bedrooms, 16 two and three bedroom maisonettes and 12 one and two bedroom apartments.
