We’re thrilled to be holding a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday, 29th September. The friendly ProMedical team will be on hand to indulge in the three Cs: Coffee, Cake and Chat.
As part of our commitment to charity our Macmillan Coffee Morning is being held to raise money for cancer care. Almost anyone can hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning to support this vital charity. In fact, due to individuals and companies around the UK organising and holding events like this, the charity was able to raise £29.5 million to support its work as a provider of care services for cancer patients. We’re hoping that the charity will be able to top this in 2017 and have pledged our support for the event.
The Macmillan Coffee Morning, also known as “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”, began as a small event in 1990. The idea behind it was that people would turn up to have coffee and that the cost of each coffee sold would be donated to Macmillan.
The idea took off and each year there seems to be more people, organisations and companies that want to get involved. Over the years since the coffee mornings began Macmillan has been the recipient of over £165.5 million that has been raised by simply selling coffee.
ProMedical stands with Macmillan and we’re excited to be holding our own coffee morning.
