Cotswold Coffee Morning Gives £500 To Charity
Coffee and cakes were snapped up this month when keen staff at Cotswold District Council raised £500 through a charity Coffee Morning.
The event, held on the morning of August 14th, was attended by more than 100 staff at the Council’s Trinity Road offices in Cirencester and also included a book sale and raffle.
The gathering – part of a series of charity events that the Council supports – was held to support the county’s Air Ambulance service and the Everyman charity, which raises funds to help fight male cancers.
CDC’s Hilary Beach, chair of the Council’s Staff Forum, said the event was a huge success: “I thought it went very well, and was a great effort on everyone’s part.
“A lot of hard work went into the morning and everybody did their bit, whether it was through baking cakes, helping with the raffle, or simply through donations.”
Anyone wanting any information on Cotswold District Council and its services should contact the Trinity Road offices on 01285 623000.
