Cof­fee event in third year

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

A COF­FEE af­ter­noon which has be­come a suc­cess­ful an­nual event will raise money for can­cer.

Francesca Robin­son and Kayleigh Welsh first hosted their event in Lan­g­ley three years ago in aid of Macmil­lan can­cer care.

They wanted to raise money for the charity which has helped peo­ple close to them.

This year Francesca is go­ing it alone or­gan­is­ing the event but will be busy bak­ing up cakes for those at­tend­ing.

She said: “Af­ter the last two amaz­ingly suc­cess­ful cof­fee af­ter­noons I have de­cided to do it again for the third year. This year I’m do­ing it alone, I must be crazy.

“The to­tal raised in the past two years is £5,000, which I never dreamed would hap­pen and could not have hap­pened with­out the sup­port of my amaz­ing friends and fam­ily plus ev­ery­one who has at­tended and do­nated.

“Please come down for plenty of tea, cof­fee and de­li­cious home­made cake and help raise as much money as pos­si­ble for such an amaz­ing charity.”

Francesca has col­lected more than 70 raf­fle prizes from busi­nesses and lo­cal su­per­mar­kets have do­nated bak­ing in­gre­di­ents to help out.

She said: “Macmil­lan have helped too many peo­ple who are very close to me over the last few years and I want to help re­pay them for all they have done.”

The cof­fee af­ter­noon is at Lan­g­ley vil­lage hall on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 2 from 1pm to 4pm.
