TWO companies joined forces recently to take part in a popular fundraising event.
Staff from the Kingston Coffee House and Lalys Pharmacy, both in Fratton, decided to team up for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event.
Thousands of businesses throughout the UK take part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning each year, but the these firms decided to band together to raise as much as possible.
Employees from both companies, on Kingston Road, prepared cakes, coffees, teas and games for customers and passers by.
After the event, organisers totted up their takings and found that they had managed to raise just over £200 for the worthy cause.
Barista and event co-ordinator Lisa Jordan said: ‘We are so proud with the amount we raised.
‘To raise over £200 from biscuits, cakes and games that were 50p or £1 was an unexpected, but wonderful surprise.’
