Vincents’ tasty fundraiser for Macmillan

Lawyers from Lancashire based Vincents Solicitors have raised more than £160 for a leading cancer charity. The team at the firm’s Preston HQ enjoyed sampling a spread of homemade cakes and pastries in aid of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Care.

The event at Vincents’ office in Winckley Square was organised by Maddison Clegg, who is part of the head office administration team. The firm celebrates the event every year and Maddison was keen to help the charity which provided support for her grandfather John.

She said: “Macmillan Cancer Care is a wonderful charity which does amazing work with people suffering from a really terrible illness. The Coffee Morning is a great fundraiser which not only brings in much needed donations, but also raises awareness for the charity in a lovely, fun way. I was so pleased to see how many people joined in by making cakes and popping in to have a coffee and a chat, and make a donation. I’m delighted that we’re able to add £161.40 to the national total.”

Ross Wellman, head of the commercial department, praised the efforts of Maddison and all who took part. He said: “Who knew we had such a talented group of bakers within our midst, the cakes were simply delicious and I couldn’t help but go back for more of Maddie’s flapjacks and Tasneem’s lemon cupcakes.

“There is always a lot of support for Macmillan as the charity is close to the hearts of many people. These nurses are incredible and were a huge support for my mother Daphne throughout her illness. She was a legal secretary and was the inspiration for my going into the law. She told me being a lawyer was an easy job because the secretaries do all the work. It’s not quite turned out that way, my fellow solicitors are all pretty hardworking, but we certainly couldn’t survive without our fantastic admin team. In addition to all of her usual duties, Maddie arranged this excellent event, and I want to thank her and everyone who took part.”
