Golden shot at Macmillan coffee morning

HOME MADE. At Canford Chase for the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning are (from left to right) staff Nina Upwood, Justin Corder, Lilly Chiu and Mark Newell with residents Ian Milroy and John Griffiths.

The kettles went on and the freshly baked cakes were served as we supported the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, adding a Willy Wonka-style twist to the proceedings.

Among the cakes and pastries prepared at each of our homes was a ‘Golden Cupcake’,  reminiscent of Roald Dahl’s ‘golden ticket’, which contained an edible gold leaf filling hidden inside.

Lucky recipients won a bottle of bubbly and were entered into a prize draw with the chance to win £250 in shopping vouchers. Colten Care made an equivalent £250 donation to Macmillan on their behalf.


As well as the cupcake search, homes hosted garden events, live music and even staff-versus-relatives bake-off competitions.

John Griffiths, a resident at Canford Chase home in Poole, said: “This was a lovely, happy get-together in aid of a charity that does such amazing work.”
