Lam­lash joins world’s big­gest cof­fee morn­ing

The Arran Banner - - News -

Lam­lash Church vol­un­teers joined thou­sands of com­mu­ni­ties, churches and schools across the coun­try tak­ing part in the world’s big­gest cof­fee morn­ing in aid of Macmil­lan Cancer Sup­port.

Rose­mary Roberts and a team of vol­un­teers served up an ar­ray of sweet treats and teas and cof­fees to a packed hall of peo­ple who went along to sup­port the an­nual ini­tia­tive where there were also stalls sell­ing cards, crafts, knitwear and tempt­ing treats to take away.

The event, which was one of sev­eral cof­fee morn­ings held on the is­land in sup­port of the char­ity, raised £368.30.

Thank you

Or­gan­iser Rose­mary said: ‘Thank you to ev­ery­one who con­trib­uted by do­nat­ing and help­ing out on the day. We could not have raised the fan­tas­tic sum with­out the kind help of ev­ery­one in­volved.’

Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ings, now in their 27th year, saw 6,665 cof­fee morn­ings tak­ing place across Scot­land last year, rais­ing more than £2.3 mil­lion for the char­ity.

Or­gan­is­ers are hop­ing to build on this suc­cess with the cu­mu­la­tive amount raised over the 27 years ex­ceed­ing £200 mil­lion.
