I am a sucker for coffee and I’d like to think that I do my share when it comes to good causes. I think it is a good way to give back something to the community or to specific people. Even though I may have my share of flak and bad luck, I know that others have it worse than I do. Anyhow, I found a great combination – of coffee and good causes – in an event that is being held in Milton Keynes in the UK this 26 September.
By no means am I going as I am not anywhere near the UK but the idea behind Coffee Morning is worth writing about:
City gets behind big Macmillan fundraiser
Get ready for the biggest event in the Macmillan Cancer Charity’s year -the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
On Friday, September 26, scores of people across Milton Keynes will be organising get togethers to drink coffee – or tea, eat cakes and biccies and raise loads of cash for a good cause.
Among them will be Sally Wisson from Hulcote.
Her coffee morning event is at Salford Village Hall with full blown English breakfasts also on the menu for a suggested donation of a fiver.
Last year she and her two sons and an army of helpers raised almost £1,800.
To organise your own event register at www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee or call 0845 602 1246.
So I checked out the Macmilllan web site and found out that they are aiming to raise £8.5 million in order to help people who have cancer. The great thing about this is that anyone can organize his or her Coffee Morning and contribute. I am thinking that we could have something similar for other good causes.
