Following a vote by our Persona Your Voice Committee, a number of coffee mornings were held across our services and over £940 was raised for charity!

Queensberry and Hoyles joined forces to create their own Bake Off extravaganza. With lots of delicious treats and cakes, operations manager, Mark Gilroy, had his work cut out judging. A beautifully decorated, heart-shaped caked won the prize - a voucher for Boots. Their coffee morning was a roaring success, raising a sweet £140 for Bury Hospice. But, like a cherry on top, the Persona staff chipped in and boosted the amount to a total of £155.

The team at Grundy Hub raised a brilliant £64.11.

Elmhurst raised a fantastic £211.13 for Macmillan during their coffee morning.

Our Shared Lives team gathered at The Green Community Café with a special appearance from DJ Macc. They were joined by carers, people we support in Shared Lives and people from Victoria Centre. They raised a grand total of £41.

The team at Red Bank raised an impressive £299.83 for Macmillan during their coffee morning.

The Elms got their gloves on and baked lots of carrot cupcakes and an assortment of bread. They raised £170!

Well done to each of our services for all the hard work you put in and the money raised! 

And a massive thanks to Persona Your Voice for inspiring the coffee mornings.
