The Challenges

Maria Faulkner, Macmillan Programme Coordinator, loves a pastry with her coffee but as she enjoys vegan food they’re harder to come by. So, she’s taking the challenge and is going to attempt to bake her very own cinnamon swirls for the first time ever. Will her pastry rise to the challenge?

Linda Whittaker, Community Navigator for the East of Cornwall is attempting chocolate eclairs. Choux pastry (well, piping actually) hasn’t been the most successful before now but that’s all going to change for the coffee morning!

Ellen Stephens, Community Navigator for the West of Cornwall missed out on authentic Scottish shortbread when her holiday was cancelled in May, so is going to try making her own without burning them this time.

Age UK Cornwall has a unique partnership with Macmillan in the South West. Our Macmillan Team can offer anyone directly or indirectly affected by cancer, information and signposting to bring them the appropriate support they need, whilst also having the time to be that all-important listening ear.
