Macmillan Coffee Morning - Friday 27th September

This Friday between 9am - 11am we are hosting a Coffee Morning in Aid of Macmillan Cancer Support!

Join the Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning - the more the merrier. If everyone brings a friend and donates or spends a £1.00, we should raise some much needed money for this fantastic charity. 

Unfortunately everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer, it does not discriminate by age, creed, colour, religion and every donation (no matter how small) really does count.

If you are not able to make the event you are more than welcome to help in other ways by either donating cake, cookies, cupcakes etc or a prize for the raffle or you can leave a donation at the bar - all proceeds from the event will be given to Macmillan.
