Dixons host Biggest Coffee Morning!

25th September 2015

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. The first ever Macmillan Coffee Morning happened in 1990. It was a simple idea where guests would gather together over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. The Coffee Morning has raised over £138 million for Macmillan since 1990.
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer in some way and knows the great work Macmillan Nurses do in our community. Therefore we were only too keen to organise a Coffee Morning to help raise some much needed funds for the McMillan charity. Every little helps and who doesn’t love an excuse for tea and cake?
The event was organised as a team and we have quite a few secret bakers that could give Mary Berry a run for her money. We had approximately 40 people in attendance and there was more than enough baked goods for not only a Coffee Morning but a sneaky Coffee Afternoon break as well.
Having raised over £400.00 this was definitely a worthwhile fund raising event and one which everyone at Dixons thoroughly enjoyed.
It’s true what McMillan say “Cake tastes better together!”
