GPH Builders' Merchants is inviting people to enjoy tea and home-made cake in its branches as part of a national fundraising event.

Staff from GPH Builders Merchants, which is based in Westhill, Inverurie and Stonehaven, will be baking a selection of treats as part of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support on 9 October.

Customers are invited to drop in to sample the selection of home bakes, in return for a small donation to the charity. Every cake shared helps the charity assist those affected by cancer, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

GPH sales and marketing director, Nikki Mortimer, said: "We are looking forward to participating in the World's Biggest Coffee morning again this year. We have some excellent enthusiastic bakers and this is a great opportunity to showcase their talents. Our customers have always been very supportive of our charity fundraising efforts. Last year, their generous contributions raised £650 between our Westhill and Inverurie branches and, with the addition of our new Stonehaven branch, we would be thrilled to exceed last years' total."

GPH's three branches will open their doors to the public from 7am on 9 October, with cakes available from 8am.

MacMillan Cancer Support helps people affected by cancer, including patients, families, friends, communities and carers. The charity also funds nurses and other specialist health care professionals to build cancer care centers, which provides support in a number of different ways to hundreds of people across the UK.
