Macmillan Coffee Day
We wrote to you in September inviting you to our Macmillan Cancer relief coffee and cake fund raiser. We set what I thought was the slightly ambitious target of raising £1,000. Clearly, I don’t think big enough because we held our coffee morning on Friday and, including gift aid, we have this morning just tipped over £2,800 in total!!!* Macmillan do a fantastic job in helping people fight cancer and we are just so grateful to everyone who made cake, everyone who came (and there were a lot of you) and to everyone who simply donated. THANK YOU ALL!
I am pleased to announce that the champagne raffle was won by David Martin-Woodgate and the cake by Janice Watson, it actually weighed a spectacular 7lbs 2oz (3.24kg).
We would love to see us tip over the £3,000 mark, so if you meant to donate but haven’t got round to it yet, you can still give on line here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/factsfigures – it only takes a minute. You may not get any cake now but that different “nice warm feeling” comes without calories!
Freddie & Janice Watson, with their adviser Nicolle Sodey
* We are financial advisers so, to be clear, as I write our just giving page shows a headline figure of £2,314 – the additional gift aid is mentioned at the bottom of that page and there is another £100 or so from offline gift aid – so we really have raised over £2,800!!!! 🙂
