We remain a charitable company, and we were always determined to tie our efforts into party night. A dedicated prize draw and auction was carried out, and a massive £5500 was raised for both Acorns Children’s Hospice and Just Small Change combined.

Red Nose Day is a light-hearted yet fantastic charitable event, conducted by Comic Relief every two years. Everyone is gearing up for a night of comedy and fundraising that will hit our TV screens tonight, with red noses set to be a common sight. But when did it all begin? And why are those funky red noses so significant?
The last one was a huge success, and the next one will be here before you know it; the Promise Dreams annual walk. Arriving this year on Sunday 13th September, you can help raise a lot of money for seriously and terminally ill children…and help make their dreams come true. The walk is 9 miles which may seem far but in reality, your help extends much, much further than that.
It’s Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event, where people across the UK hold a coffee morning and raise money for people living with cancer. In 2013, 154,000 people signed up, raising a record £20 million.
Whats it all about?
Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. And as treatments improve, more and more people are living with cancer in their daily lives. The money raised at the coffee mornings will help make sure no one has to face cancer alone, from the moment they’re diagnosed, through treatment and beyond.
Coinadrink will be enjoying a coffee and a slice of cake, or two, to support this excellent charity!
