As part of a fundraising campaign to help MacMillan Cancer Support raise funds for their Chesterfield based Cancer Centre, Spencers Solicitors held a 'Doughnut Day' on the 10th of July 2015 followed by a sponsored walk on the 11th of July 2015 whereby staff signed up to walk off their doughnut indulgence for a minimum of 2.5 hours, representative of the £2.5 million Macmillan need to raise.
Doughnut day was a great success with eight dozen doughnuts and a dozen fabulous home baked doughnut cup cakes sold to raise money. Employees, friends, family and pets then turned out for a sponsored walk around Linacre Reservoirs and the surrounding areas bright and early the following day.
Kelly Pashley-Handford HR Manager at Spencers Solicitors said:
"This two phase fundraising event was a great success thanks to generous donations and the remarkable support of all staff involved. We raised a grand total of £750. Grateful thanks go to: Lisa Morris who coordinated both events; Elisabeth Piroddi who baked fantastic doughnut cupcakes and; everyone who took part and pledged sponsorship for such an inspiring local facility."
