‘Tea’rrific treats to raise funds for Macmillan at Scotland’s top bars
10 months AGOIain Fenwick
This September, The Saint Bar & Kitchen in St Andrews and Badger & Co. in Edinburgh will be raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting coffee mornings and launching a Macmillan ‘tea’rrific cocktail, with 50% of the cocktail sales donated to the charity.
The ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ campaign is one of Macmillan’s largest fundraisers and has taken place for over 25 years. In total, the event has raised £138 million to help those battling cancer. This year, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will take place at venues across the UK on the 28th of September.
To mark The Saint’s first Macmillan Coffee Morning, the kitchen team will be making St Andrews largest scone tower. Customers will have the chance guess how many scones are in the tower to be in with a chance to win afternoon tea and prosecco for two at The Saint. Local residents, businesses, tourists and students will all be welcome to enjoy a variety of traditional Scottish cakes and treats on offer in return for a donation to the charity.
Badger & Co. will be celebrating their biggest ever coffee morning with more than just tea and coffee on offer. Hairstyling and nail treatments will be available from Charlie Miller and the Sleeping Beauty Salon in return for a charity donation. The event will be open for everyone to enjoy; it will be the perfect chance to catch up with friends whilst supporting Macmillan’s invaluable work.
Each of the expert bar teams have created a limited edition Macmillan ‘tea’rrific cocktail, which will be available from Friday 28th September to Sunday 30thSeptember. Concocted using Earl Grey flavours, it will pair perfectly with a slice of cake! 50% of sales from the cocktail will go to support the work of Macmillan. A non-alcoholic alternative will also be available.
General Manager of Badger & Co., Alec Duncan, said: “The Badger & Co. team and I are looking forward to fundraising in our own, special way to support the fantastic work of Macmillan Cancer Support. We hope that through creating a bespoke cocktail and holding our coffee morning, we’ll beat our fundraising total from previous years and make it our biggest and best Macmillan Coffee Morning yet.”
Badger & Co.’s Coffee Morning will take place from 9am to 11am on Friday 28th September at 32 Castle Street, Edinburgh EH2 3HT.
The Saint’s Coffee Morning will take place from 10am to 12pm on Friday 28th September at 170 South Street, St Andrews KY16 9EG.
