On 30th September, the staff here at Wilson Field’s Sheffield office will be taking part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning 2016.
Fundraising with coffee and cake
The Macmillan Coffee Morning began back in 1990 and has grown over the last 26 years to become the world’s biggest coffee morning. In total, the event has raised over £138 million which goes to support people living with cancer, their friends and family. It also helps support the hundreds of Macmillan nurses all over the country whose role is vital for so many.
But it isn’t just the money raised that’s important to this charity. They are raising awareness of themselves, the work they do and the difficulties families across the UK face when they receive a cancer diagnosis.
The idea for this event is very simple. Get some of your friends or colleagues together, bake some cakes, drink some coffee or tea and have a chat.
By selling your cakes and drinks or simply encouraging people to donate, you will be helping make a big difference. A difference in the lives of people who have been affected by cancer in any way.
We, at Wilson Field, feel that this is an important event and we want to support it and the charity by taking part. So, on September 30th, we’ll be one of many coffee mornings taking place up and down the country.
If you are interested in holding your own coffee morning or you just want to find out more about the charity, visit their website.
