Garador raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support!

Garador staff have been busy eating cakes today all in support of Macmillan Cancer Support! All the staff baked their hearts out to make a selection of delicious cakes for the Macmillan Coffee morning event, with treats ranging from a mouth-watering lemon cake to chocolatey fudge cake, as well as flapjacks, strawberry and cream sponges, and rocky road bites! All of this was done to help raise money for this great cause.

All in all we managed to raise over £180 for the charity and look forward to doing it all again next year! Click here to find out more about Macmillan Cancer Support, or visit the Macmillan coffee morning website to organise your coffee morning!

Garador Supports Macmillan Cancer Support on Charity Cycle Ride

Garador’s Managing Director Simon Hipgrave cycled over 176 miles over two days this week, as part of the Tour De Jewson charity cycle ride! Keen cyclists Rob Green and Alan Bacon joined Simon on the Exeter leg of the cycle event which ended back at the Garador factory here in Yeovil. After a lot of hard work and some challenging hills everyone was a little worn out, but were really pleased to have cycled such a long way to support Macmillan Cancer Support. They are a great charity and we are delighted to support such a worthwhile cause which makes such a difference to so many people’s lives. To make a contribution, please click here.
