On Sunday October 6th I hosted a Macmillan coffee morning. I did this to coincide with the launch of my new 'make-up tea parties' and with my mother-in-law in mind who has recently beaten breast cancer and praised the huge support she received from the Macmillan nurses.
Coffee morning's are now a hugely popular and easy way of raising money for Macmillan. In my town Harpenden alone I saw many coffee morning's taking place over the past few weeks. Together so many have got involved to achieve 'Our world's biggest coffee morning'!
I am thrilled to announce my coffee morning raised a wonderful £227.00 so far!
This helps make sure everyone affected by cancer has a Macmillan team in their corner. I still have a few promised donations to collect as well as the results of the 'Guess the cake weight' competition which ends on Thursday 10th at East Hyde Village hall '£1.00 per guess'! I will let everyone know the total amount raised hopefully by Friday 11th.
Every £100.00 raised could give a mum with breast cancer a Macmillan nurse who will answer her questions with sensitivity and expertise. From what to expect after surgery, to how to cope with the side effects of chemotherapy or adjusting to life after cancer. Together we can make sure no one faces cancer alone. To those that came along thank you for giving so generously. If you would like to donate to Macmillan text COFFEE to 70550.
Again, I would like to thank all those who helped and made such generous donations at my coffee morning to make it such a huge success.
A special thank you to Sarah Barnes who made and donated a beautifully decorated chocolate sponge cake as well as stunning cupcakes. Chris at East Hyde Village Hall who hired the hall space for my event to take place and offered great ideas and support. My husband and mother who came along to lend a much appreciated helping hand and my friends Andy and Angela who helped greatly in raising a lot more donations for Macmillan.
