Diets were on pause this week at Verbatim while we held a Cupcake Day to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society. Our lovely receptionist Angela, who has been with us for 14 years, organised the event; much to everyone’s pleasure, because who doesn’t enjoy cupcakes after all? She had many of us busy in the kitchen, and perhaps a cheeky few in the store. We certainly had a wonderful array of gorgeous goodies turn up.
No-one was going hungry today!
Knocking on office doors with a tray full of temptation gave me a great excuse to finally meet some of the tenants of our building. It is amazing how many I swear I have never seen before. It is a small example of how good causes can bring people together.
Our small but mighty team raised £50 for the Alzheimer’s Society. I think we can be proud of our efforts, when just £40 is enough to pay for a person living with dementia to attend a Dementia Café support group for two months.
