HSBC UK Con­tact Cen­tre Malta raises a cup for World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

The HSBC UK Con­tact Cen­tre Malta (UKCC) in Swatar joined in the ‘World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing’ in aid of UK-based Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port char­ity and raised not just bak­ing agents but more than a to­tal of €1,500.

Staff mem­bers brought in more than 50 types of cakes, muffins, fti­ras, and del­i­ca­cies to raise the funds. A va­ri­ety of fun ac­tiv­i­ties such as ‘Guess the Cake’, ‘Bake a Cake’, and ‘Pick n Mix’, as well as a raf­fle and tea, cof­fee, and cake trol­leys fur­ther sweet­ened the char­ity drive.

The World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing is Macmil­lan UK’s big­gest fundrais­ing event for peo­ple fac­ing can­cer. In 2015, the char­ity raised a record £27.6 mil­lion (€31.8 mil­lion). While Macmil­lan doesn’t have a reg­is­tered pres­ence in Malta, its’ sup­port net­work is of­ten the first point of rec­om­men­da­tion by doc­tors in Malta to can­cer pa­tients and their fam­i­lies.

“Giv­ing back to so­ci­ety is a hall­mark of HSBC and it’s al­ways in­spir­ing to see the en­thu­si­asm of our em­ploy­ees who join in and do­nate gen­er­ously over a cof­fee and cake,” said Robert Vaughan, direc­tor, HSBC UKCC.

The HSBC UKCC reg­u­larly or­gan­ises var­i­ous fundrais­ing and aware­ness ac­tiv­i­ties to sup­port the so­ci­ety it op­er­ates in, while staff fre­quently vol­un­teer in the com­mu­nity. Ear­lier this year, the Con­tact Cen­tre raised and do­nated €1,500 to the Malta De­men­tia So­ci­ety. The HSBC UKCC funds en­abled the NGO to present Malta’s first ever de­men­tia-themed play in Mal­tese lan­guage. The play, IlMasġar tal-Al­lat Siekta (The or­chard of the si­lent gods), was pre­sented on 2nd Oc­to­ber as part of the Sci­ence in the City 2016 fes­ti­val.

Es­tab­lished in 2006, the Cen­tre has grown through the years with now more than 450 em­ploy­ees as­sist­ing UK cus­tomers. Ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties ex­ist to join HSBC UKCC Malta and be part of a great team. More in­for­ma­tion about th­ese can be had at www.hsbc.com.mt/ca­reers.
