Raising money for Macmillian Cancer Support at CGL New Directions

cakeCancer affects 1 in 2 people, with over 200 types of cancer. Charities such as Macmillian Cancer Support provide great support to close ones and those affected by cancer.

On 30th September staff from CGL New Directions had organised events to raise some funds for Macmillian cancer support. In our Newark hub there was a cake decorating competition and in our Mansfield Hub there was a bake off competition.

All of the cakes that were entered into the events were made by Service Users and CGL staff members. We would like to say a special well done to Darren Riley who won the event in Newark and thank you to Deborah Hibbert who organised the event in Mansfield. Over £180 was raised, which we know will go a long way in supporting people who have been directly or in directly affected by cancer.
