Scottish builders' merchants invites customers to tea and cake fundraiser

Published:  08 October, 2015

GPH Builders Merchants has invited people to enjoy tea and cake in any of its branches to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The award winning builders’ merchants, which is based in Westhill, Inverurie and Stonehaven, will be baking a selection of treats as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for the charity on 9 October.

Customers are invited to drop in to sample the selection of home bakes, in return for a small donation to the charity.

MacMillan Cancer Support helps people affected by cancer, including patients, families, friends, communities and carers. The charity also funds nurses and other specialist health care professionals to build cancer care centers, which provides support in a number of different ways to hundreds of people across the UK.

Every cake shared helps the charity assist those affected by cancer, from diagnosis, through to treatment and beyond.

GPH sales and marketing director, Nikki Mortimer, said: “We are looking forward to participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee morning once again this year. We have some excellent enthusiastic bakers and this is a great opportunity to showcase their talents.

“Our customers have always been very supportive of our charity fundraising efforts. Last year, their generous contributions raised £650 between our Westhill and Inverurie branches, and with the addition of our new Stonehaven branch we would be thrilled to exceed last years’ total.”

GPH’s three branches will open their doors to the public from 7am on 9 October, with cakes available from 8am.
