A.F. Blakemore Raises a Cuppa for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

October 02, 2019

World's Biggest Coffee Morning

Blakemore employees have donated more than £1,900 worth of tea, coffee, cake, squash and biscuits to Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Colleagues from Blakemore Retail SPAR stores donated an amazing 46 in-kind donations worth £1,965 via the Blakemore Foundation to members of local communities fundraising for the event, which took place on 27th September.

The donated goods are thought to have helped fundraisers raise around £2,100 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The charity provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support to those facing cancer, as well as campaigning for better cancer care.

Community Affairs Officer Kate Senter commented: “Congratulations to those who hosted Macmillan Coffee Morning events this year. Your support never fails to impress me.

“I hope the goods given by the Blakemore Foundation enabled fundraisers to raise more vital funds for the cancer charity.”
