The aroma of freshly brewed coffee and scent of homemade cakes filled the air as we recently hosted our much-loved Coffee Morning. On Friday 29th September 2023, we held our 10th annual Coffee Morning, and it is safe to say it was a huge success, raising an astonishing amount of £10,091.10!!! We are still in shock over this amount and can’t thank everyone enough. This would not have been possible without the support we get every year from our community – thank you!
From the moment it turned 10am, the Calpe Rowing Club filled with smiles and friendly greetings. In addition to the delightful coffee and engaging conversations, this year, it being our 10th anniversary we decided to introduce a Bake-Off Competition for both adults & kids – this also proved a huge success. We had 10 amazing entries, all different, yet delicious in their own way. We thank all of you extremely talented bakers for taking the time to create such delicious treats to be judged and then sold on the day.
As we do every year, we also had a raffle with some incredible prizes kindly donated by individuals and businesses in the community. We congratulate all the winners and hope they enjoy their prizes!
The day was run by our fundraising team and was greatly supported by our incredible volunteers! We also had some fantastic supporters lend a helping hand including, RBS, Trusted Novus Bank, and some players from Lincoln Red Imps.
We were also extremely supported by local establishments and schools who either held their own coffee mornings in-house or contributed to ours by donating a percentage of their profits made on the day! Some of these establishments and schools have been supporting us for years and every year they raise such an incredible amount which helps our Centre so much!
We are filled with gratitude for the wonderful community we have the privilege of being a part of. To all who attended our Coffee Morning, or supported us on the day, we can’t thank you all enough. We look forward to next years and hope you all do too!
