Mekon raise £100 for Macmillan Cancer Support

On September 30th Mekon joined in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Mekon joined the fun and we are pleased to announce that Mekon raised £100 by drinking coffee and eating cake!

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer which has raised over £7 million so far. People all over the UK have hosted their own Coffee Mornings and all donations on the day are made to Macmillan.

  • Stilton and pear choux buns
  • Tripple chocolate cookies
  • Scones with clotted cream and strawberries
  • Shortbread

Whilst they all tasted excellent, Senior Consultant Dave Searle’s Stilton and Pear Choux Buns won the prize for the best cake.  It provided plenty of discussion around it’s taxonomy as to if it should be categorised as a cake or a desert.

This proved to be a fun activity and it was interesting to see how different people applying different techniques to approach this challenge.  The winner was Project Manager Mike Ewins who used his analytical tool evaluation skills to guess most accurately the number of spots on the cake – well done Mike!
