On Friday 28th September 2018, five branches from Maxwell Hodge Solicitors across Liverpool and the Wirral hosted their Coffee Mornings to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Square Bar and Grill in Maghull had kindly offered to host the Coffee Morning for our Maghull branch and had provided all teas and coffees.
We had received some wonderful prizes from businesses for our raffle, including family passes to The Beatles Story, Croxteth Hall and Country Park, Breakout Liverpool, as well as generous donations provided by our staff, their family and friends.
Some other ways we helped raise money was by baking and selling cakes, guessing the weight of a cake and guessing how many Smarties were in the jar.
It was a great turnout on the day and we are very proud to announce that we raised £1,145.29 towards this wonderful cause.
We would like to thank everyone who donated prizes, baked cakes and helped to make the day a great success.
Thank you everyone!
