Watford businesses raise £500 with Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
Watford’s charity coffee morning to raise money for cancer research has been hailed a "huge success".
Local businesses and fundraisers in Watford pulled out all the stops for Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and brewed up much needed funds to help people affected by cancer.
A spokesperson for West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said: "Macmillan’s Cancer Information and Support Centre based at Watford General Hospital raised a fantastic £500, with patients and family members raising a cuppa and a slice of something nice to stir up the brilliant fundraising total.
"Thanks to a generous cake donation by Mr. Kipling, there were plenty of sweet treats to go around, with just crumbs and lots of generous donations left by the end of the morning’s fantastic fundraising."
Watford General Hospital’s Women’s and Children’s department and Acute Admissions Unit (AAU) also held their own Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan, raising a further £210 to add to the days’ fantastic total.
Kerry Briars, Macmillan Area Fundraising Manager said, "I’m really grateful to everyone who put on the kettle or baked up a storm by holding a Coffee Morning to raise vital funds for Macmillan. No one should face cancer alone and just by enjoying some coffee and cake you’ve all made a massive difference to people affected by cancer."
