On the 22nd of September, we will be helping in the fight against cancer by supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”.   One in three of us will face cancer, and the money we raise at our Coffee Morning will help to make sure that no one has to face it alone.

On the 22nd of September, we will be helping in the fight against cancer by supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”.
 
One in three of us will face cancer, and the money we raise at our Coffee Morning will help to make sure that no one has to face it alone.
 
The event first started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning and donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process.

The idea was such a simple, yet effective one that it was suggested the model be taken up on a national level, and in 1991 over 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £138 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.
 
This year we are inviting our staff to join our team for a BIG coffee morning to raise funds to help Macmillan achieve their goal.
 
Care Manager Siobhan commented:
As well as enjoying some great cakes and treats, we are delighted to be able to support those facing cancer by raising funds and awareness.
 
As well as our 'guess the size of the cake' activity, our home grown staff bakers will be bringing some delectable treats!
