Coffee, cake and cuddles with the office pups

September, 2015

This year PR and marketing agency Maxim will be taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan for the first time.

On Friday 25 September from 10am to 1pm, the Tunbridge Wells agency will be throwing open its doors for coffee, cake and the chance to meet the office puppies Alice and Gladys.

Rachel Knight, Account Director at Maxim, said: “Unfortunately many of us have been touched by cancer in some way; taking part in Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event of the year seems like a great way to raise money for a very vital cause.

“Some of us are better bakers than others but we will do our best to have a good selection of cakes on offer. Drop by and say hello but don’t forget to bring that all-important donation. Our office dogs may be small but they won’t let guests leave until they’ve done their bit.”

The first World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place in 1990 and since then has raised £138 million for Macmillan. Last year alone the event raised £25 million and the charity hopes to beat that total this year.

Maxim’s Macmillan coffee morning is open to everyone. Please email to confirm your attendance.

Make a donation

Guests who cannot attend but would still like to make a donation to Macmillan can text CUPCAKE to 70550, go to or phone 0845 074 2606. Texts cost £5 plus network charge and Macmillan will receive 95p of every £1 donated in this way.


NB: We thought it would be good to illustrate this story with a picture of the two dogs and a couple of Maxim mugs. We now know why the phrase 'Never work with children or animals' is repeated so often.
