Another September comes by and another successful Macmillan World’s
Biggest Coffee Morning is extremely successful at BTC Group HQ.

This year marks the 24th year of the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and the 2nd incredibly successful BTC Group coffee morning. With ovens still cooling down, and whisks still smoking from over use, the BTC Group staff came prepared on Friday morning with some of the best cakes and savoury ever tasted this side of London! This year we added a further competition to the fold so there would be prizes for the two guessing competitions, best cake in show and best savoury in show too!

This year’s esteemed judging panel was made up of Lee Smith, Jon Birrell (who once met Paul Hollywood!), and last year’s winner Faye Rafferty. Not much deliberation was needed for the best savoury as that prestigious award was won by default, with rumours that “The Queen of Sausage Rolls” Claire Cable was making her renowned favourite, it seems nobody wanted to compete, and thus Gary Cable received this award on her behalf!

Now for the best cake in show, there were several eligible candidates for this prize, with many of the BTC Group staff stepping up their game this year, we had cookie dough cheesecake bites, Oreo cupcakes, some delightful jam tarts, but at the end of the day it was Charlene Allvey’s delightful Carrot Cake that took the honour of being best cake in show!

As for the guessing competitions, the sprinkles on the cake competition revealed that we may indeed have a mentalist in our organisation with Gary Cable only being 8 sprinkles short of the exact answer of 4856. All in all, the entire event was a fantastic success, BTC Group has a great fondness and respect for charities, and it is wonderful when we can all get together and do something for a remarkable cause!

Being promotional product specialists we also revere Macmillan for the terrific job they did with the use of promotional material. The distribution of balloons, tablecloths, and various other POS and print items, shows just how important they believe promotional merchandise to be as each event holder receives this upon registration, with the ability to order more free of charge if more was needed. It is marvellous to see just how much credence Macmillan places in this method of spreading the message of their charity.
