A North-East builders merchants brewed up goodwill across the region last week by taking part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning.

GPH Builders Merchants in Inverurie hosted its third annual coffee morning in aid of Macmillan with members of staff getting involved in a “Great British Bake Off’ style competition.

With lemon drizzle pitted against Millionaire’s shortbread and carrot cake against banoffee cupcakes, the competition was fierce.

GPH non-executive director and local businessman Graeme Hay and his wife Gillian, were on hand to judge the bakes at all three of the company’s branches.

GPH sales and marketing director, Nikki Mortimer, said: “Team GPH is always keen to support charitable ventures and it was our pleasure to support this year’s Macmillan coffee morning.

“The generosity of our team is matched only by that of our customers and friends who so generously purchased fancy pieces from us.

“Most of us know someone who has been affected by cancer, and we are delighted to have raised over £1,200 to help Macmillan ensure no one faces cancer alone.”
