Raise cup of cheer for Macmil­lan

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

RES­I­DENTS are be­ing en­cour­aged to sign up for Macmil­lan’s World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing.

The huge fundraiser, which sees vol­un­teers host­ing cof­fee morn­ings in aid of the charity, will take place on Fri­day (Septem­ber 30).

Macmil­lan is ask­ing ev­ery­one to take part, either by host­ing a cof­fee morn­ing or by at­tend­ing one. Last year, 2,053 cof­fee morn­ings were held in Cheshire rais­ing around £493,850 for the charity that pro­vides essen­tial sup­port for peo­ple af­fected by can­cer.

Chris­tine Had­field, fundrais­ing man­ager for Macclesfield and Cheshire, said: “We want to make sure no one has to face can­cer alone but we can’t do it with­out the amaz­ing peo­ple who fundraise for us. We rely on the gen­eros­ity of our sup­port­ers for more than 99per­cent of our in­come and cof­fee morn­ing events are a great way to have fun whilst rais­ing vi­tal funds to help peo­ple af­fected by can­cer. If you can’t do it on 30th Septem­ber then just pick another day. All that mat­ters is that you get to­gether with friends, col­leagues or neigh­bours over cof­fee and cake to raise some money to help Macmil­lan be there for peo­ple af­fected by can­cer in Cheshire.”

If you can’t host or get along to a cof­fee morn­ing, visit your M&S or Na­tion­wide Build­ing So­ci­ety which are part­ners of this year’s event.
