Jon Lee Raises “a Latte” Money for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

The Jonathan Lee blog section is a great place to discover all the latest news and views on the
sectors we work with and the services we provide.

​Recently, we supported Macmillan Cancer Support’s Biggest Coffee Morning with various fundraising activities. The day has become a regular slot in our charity calendar and over the years the bake sale’s crowning ‘Star Baker’ prize has become a prestigious, highly sought-after accolade.


For our hotshot bakers, first-time makers and shop bought participators alike, this was a fantastic opportunity to do something fun, creative and very tasty in support of the coffee morning.

The crème de la crème of Jonathan Lee bakers had been busy all week making mouth-watering cakes to sell at the much-anticipated coffee morning. And as always, our talented bakers did not fail to impress… There was a plethora of delicious signature bakes to choose from, without a soggy bottom in sight!

Delicious treats included chocolate and raspberry brownies, carrot cake, lemon drizzle, rocky road and rice crispy cakes.


The time had arrived…

Our head judge and MD, David Hale, had the honour (if not unenviable job) of crowning one baker the overall cake champion for 2019.  And it was a very tough decision to make; the look and taste of all entries were superb!

After much deliberation (you could cut the tension with a knife) a winner was announced:

“The carrot cake was the standout winner for me. Moist yet light in texture with a lovely walnut crunch and a slight cinnamon kick, the superb light and fluffy sponge topped with delicious vanilla buttercream resulted in an all-round mouth-watering cake. A real melt in the mouth slice!”  said David.

And so, there we have it. Our star baker; Stephanie Willetts claimed the well-respected ‘best baker’ badge of honour.

A big thank-you to the whole Jonathan Lee Recruitment team for participating and raising money for this worthwhile cause.   

“It’s wonderful that our team take the time and effort to get together for these events, year after year” said David. And we wholeheartedly agree.
