Together, we made a difference for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. Last year the event raised £10 million; enough to fund 200 of the charity’s nurses and support 27,000 people (and their families) affected by cancer.

Brilliant donations of £178.93 from all at Colchester Business and Seedbed Centre

 “Our customers popped in with generous donations provided by their teams and enjoyed a coffee or tea and a sweet treat from our colourful cake collection. The donations provided by our customers and visitors were very generous and this truly shows that Macmillan is a charity so close to people’s hearts." said Gemma Brett, Newman Commercial, appointed agent responsible for Centre management. 

Customers were delighted to be able to donate and enjoy a cake as part of the Macmillan Fundraising morning. Many of the businesses at Colchester are small with only 1 – 3 staff members and are therefore not always able to leave their business premises. Giving everyone a chance to join in, Gemma Brett, from Newman Commercial, did a cake run round the site to each unit to give all customers an opportunity to support this worthy cause.

Collective efforts across all centres made a big difference.

“We would like to extend our thanks to all our customers as fundraisers who make it all possible. Delighted that 5 of our 8 centres joined in this event by inviting customers and staff to give generously. All monies now tallied we are planning to hand over a cheque for £ 1,365 to MacMillan Cancer care.”  added Lesley Hickmott, Marketing Facilitator.

  “Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. But you don’t have to go through it alone. The Macmillan team is with you every step of the way. We are the nurses and therapists helping you through treatment. The experts at the end of the phone. The advisers telling you which benefit you’re entitled to. The volunteers giving  you a hand with the everyday things. And the millions of campaigners like these improving cancer care. …. A big thanks to all who joined in!”   Macmillan Cancer
