        // Pass in two date objects which hold the times we want to add together

function SumOfMinutes(time, timeToAdd) { 
    // Get the hour values
    var timeHours = time.getHours();
    var AddHours = timeToAdd.getHours();

    // Get the minute values
    var timeMinutes = time.getMinutes();
    var AddMinutes = timeToAdd.getMinutes();
    
    // Add the hours & minutes
    timeHours += AddHours;
    timeMinutes += AddMinutes;

    // Set the hours & minutes
    time.setHours(timeHours);
    time.setMinutes(timeMinutes);
    
    // Return the time as a string (could also remove the format and return a date object)
    return time.format("H:mm");
