We are taking part in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September. It is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year Countrywide raised and donated £1085 towards the £27 million Macmillan raised and together we can make this another successful year.
Macmillan Coffee Mornings are changing lives. There are 157 cancer patients who are helped by each Macmillan Nurse. Macmillan offers a huge range of supportive services such as practical and emotional care, healthcare advice, learning and development provisions, campaigning, awareness and financial support. Macmillan takes the time to understand the support people need to live their lives as fully as they can. From the moment of diagnosis and whenever most needed, Macmillan are there to help people find their best way through. Their help is totally focused on each individual person, so everyone receives the support that’s best for them, that is why this is such an incredible cause.
2.5 million people are currently living with cancer in the UK. We want to help by making sure we’re there for everyone affected when they need us the most. Every penny raised helps make a difference to people affected by cancer.
Countrywide Supplies are putting their skills to the test by holding a bake off and competing to see who the best 2018 office baker is. Last year’s office bake off raised £1085 and we aim to deliver the same drive, support and yummy cakes this year. We will be playing games and holding a raffle in our office to increase our fundraising donations.
Hosting a Coffee Morning will offer the perfect chance to catch up, take a break and have a slice of delicious home baked good – all for a great cause. One in two of us will face cancer and the money we raise will help ensure no one had to face it alone.
