Thanks to wonderful family, friends & customers we have raised an incredible £410.00 during our Macmillan coffee morning this year. We have also, over the course of 2018 had some bric a brac items donated to us to be sold to benefit Macmillan - these have raised an additional £293.00 - all from 10p - £10.00 here & there! 
On our two previous Macmillan coffee mornings we have raised a total of around £450.00. Add this to the £250 ish we donate to buy the cakes & coffees that is quite a substantial donation to a great charity.
