BLUEBIRD CARE’S CAKE AWAY RAISES HUNDREDS FOR MACMILLAN

Bluebird Care customers were given the opportunity to order an Afternoon Tea Box in return for a £5 donation to Macmillan.

Bluebird Care’s offices in Stamford & Rutland and Bluebird Care Peterborough & Oundle raised over £200 for Macmillan Cancer Support at their ‘Cake Away’ stall on 25th September. 

The home care provider has been taking part in Macmillan’s annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for the last six years. However, COVID-19 has meant that these events were not possible this year due to social distancing measures. Determined to continue their fundraising tradition, Bluebird Care Stamford & Rutland and Bluebird Care Peterborough & Oundle sold home-baked cakes to passers-by, friends and colleagues at an outdoor cake stall. 

With various delicious treats available, including cookies, brownies and fruit loaf, the home care provider was able to raise a significant amount of money to help Macmillan’s cancer support services. 

Bluebird Care Stamford & Rutland and Bluebird Care Peterborough & Oundle’s innovative fundraising technique also went one step further to deliver cakes to customers who were unable to visit the stall. Customers were given the opportunity to order an Afternoon Tea Box in return for a £5 donation to Macmillan. These boxes included freshly baked scones, fresh sandwiches, cakes and savoury snacks and received 18 orders from generous customers. 

Leisa MacKenzie, Owner and Director of Bluebird Care Stamford & Rutland and Bluebird Care Peterborough & Oundle, and Karen Andic, Accounts Manager at the home care’s offices, then took it upon themselves to personally deliver the first batch of orders to customers. 

Speaking of their Cake Away success, Leisa MacKenzie said: “It was wonderful to see so many people helping us to make a difference by getting involved and supporting such a great cause. Everyone was thrilled with their treats. Most of us have been or are affected by cancer in some way or form, losing family, friends, customers or suffering ourselves, so supporting this charity is immensely important for the whole Bluebird Care family.”
