In support of the Macmillan Cancer charity, ASSA ABLOY UK has partnered with brands including Yale, Chubb Lock Custodial and UNION to raise £4,800 by taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Taking place on Friday 25th September, over 1,000 employees contributed to the event. 

A selection of cakes and sweets were provided across six sites based in Wilenhall, Wolverhampton, Milton Keynes, Cheltenham, Alvechurch and Lisburn to raise money and awareness for the cancer charity.

Neil Vann, Market Region Manager at ASSA ABLOY, UK, said: “We are delighted to have raised such a magnificent sum this year for Macmillan.  

ASSA ABLOY UK supports several charities and the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was a brilliant way of bringing our employees together across our UK sites to support such a wonderful cause.” 

The event also included a competition to decide the best cake, which inspired creative designs including an ASSA ABLOY cake, lock shaped cakes and a Wolverhampton Wanderers cake.

Employees from the Milton Keynes site were also given the opportunity to ‘cake’ its management team in the face in aid of the cause.

The event also incorporated tombolas and a UK wide luxury raffle, with prizes such as a TV, vouchers, champagne and a personalised photo canvas. 

The prizes were donated from ASSA ABLOY’s suppliers, including ISS Facility Services, Colter Steels Ltd, Vision Profiles, Quantum Print & Packaging, Global Metal Finishers, Hillsteels, Dynacast, Clevedon, Spectrum Printers, Clevercherry and Edson Evers.
