MacMillan’s Coffee Morning is back on Friday 28thSeptember and Coinadrink is delighted to be taking part once again. Now, working for a vending company, we know better than most about the power of a great cup of coffee, but not even we could have forecast just how successful this annual coffee morning would be. From the first ever event in 1990, MacMillan has raised over £200 million courtesy of all you wonderful people across the globe. That’s truly excellent work!
A background to the coffee morning…
Regarded as the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, MacMillan brings friends, family and colleagues together for a great cause.
It’s a sad but well-known fact that cancer will affect one in two of us at some point in our lives and the diagnosis can affect a person’s whole life. MacMillan has provided more than 100 years of care and support and they stand by the side of cancer sufferers as friends as well as nurses. MacMillan takes time to understand each and every person and tailor their support to suit.
Check out one of MacMillan’s adverts from last year. I thought it was a really moving portrayal of how cancer doesn’t have to change a person on the inside. How do you feel when watching it?
2017 – A successful coffee morning!
I have been with Coinadrink for a while now and it’s great to see just how much work we do for charities. Last years’ coffee morning saw us go the extra mile for MacMillan and we turned our showroom into something special with the welcome pack provided. Flags, bunting and banners helped provide a great occasion, helped further by the hard work and dedication of our employees. As it turns out, staff at Coinadrink are experts in baking as well as vending and they produced a delicious spread to help raise £100 for MacMillan Cancer Support!
Hoping for more in 2018.
I’ll hold my hands up here and admit that I don’t have the same hidden Jamie Oliver or Mary Berry that my colleagues possess, so my pre-made Battenberg’s and Lemon Cakes were significantly overshadowed. Still, they tasted good enough…For anyone who isn’t a ‘dab hand’ in the kitchen, it’s refreshing to know that Marks and Spencer’s are this years’ headline partner for the coffee morning and they have a great selection of goodies on offer for you to share around.
We have already received this years’ welcome pack and are looking forward to taking part in September’s coffee morning. We’ll be sure to keep you up to date on how we get on so make sure you keep checking back!
