Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning comes to Bucks
9:14am Friday 27th September 2013 in News
COFFEE and cake will be in plentiful supply across south Bucks today as people take the chance to indulge in a quick break to support a cancer charity.
The Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning events will be held at a number of venues across the county to help raise money to support people affected by cancer In 2012 115,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £15 million.
M&S Cafe is the official sponsor of the events, but Barclays Bank branches across the area will also be setting aside some time for a cuppa - along with a number of other independently events organised across the county.
Employees from the Flackwell Heath branch of Barlclays will be hoping to raise more than £200 for people affected by cancer, with homemade cakes set to go on sale to staff and customers alike.
In 2012 Barclays employees and customers across the UK smashed the fundraising target and raised £640,000 for Macmillan, helping the charity to provide practical, medical and financial support to people affected by cancer so that no one has to face cancer alone.
Matt Morris, Flackwell Heath branch manager says, "We’re delighted to be supporting Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee morning once again this year. Our event was a huge success last year and we’re really looking forward to inviting the local community to join us once again for such a good cause. There really couldn’t be an easier way to make a difference."
Becky Ellison, Partnership Account Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support says, "I’d like to thank everyone at Barclays in Flackwell Heath for their continued support of Macmillan. We hope that all Barclays’ customers drop in and tuck in to some tasty treats to help make this year’s Coffee Morning extra special and raise vital funds for people affected by cancer."
