News from HMS Collingwood

The Haven at HMS Collingwood is one of our busiest coffee bars, with new recruits enjoying the facilities daily and joining Kathy and Glynn every Tuesday for Bacon Butties. 

Here Kathy Smith tells us about her very busy time in the coffee bar:

On the 28th September we ran our annual MacMillan coffee morning cake sale. 

It is always a popular event in the coffee bar and this year was no exception.  I was over whelmed by the help and support I received from two of the ex Navy ladies that had spent time working in the coffee bar in their run up to leaving the Navy.

One lady now works as an instructor at HMS Collingwood and rallied her colleagues to make cakes to sell as well as baking many herself; the other lady contacted me to say she had a free day and would I like some help as well as making her legendary cheese cake. 

I feel privileged to have been able tosupported these ladies along with my other PW colleagues during a big time of change in their lives and I think their support at the charity cake sale shows that they really appreciated all that the Aggies Pastoral workers have done for them. 

So far the total raised for MacMillan is over £160 so all in all a very successful day.
