Social landlord Coastline Housing held a fundraising big breakfast for staff in Redruth and raised £237 for its charity of the year, Penhaligon’s Friends.
A team of the company’s senior managers donned chef hats and aprons to cook up a variety of delicious breakfast baps and pancakes for Coastline employees to get their working day off to a flying start.
The event was made possible thanks to the kind loan of cooking equipment from Redruth-based Abbotts Event Hire, who were keen to support the local fundraising.
Nathan Mallows, Director of Finance, was one of the managers doing a stint as a breakfast chef and enjoyed watching the money flow in across the morning. He said: “We’re delighted that colleagues were so keen to support such a worthy cause. Penhaligon’s Friends is a charity that’s very close to our hearts here at Coastline, so we are proud to do what we can to support them.”
Penhaligon’s Friends was chosen by Coastline staff as the company’s charity of the year due to the excellent help they gave to the family of a colleague who sadly died suddenly and unexpectedly three years ago.
The charity is based in Redruth and offers support across Cornwall to children and young people who have suffered a bereavement.
