Team building specialists, Bluehat Group, are pleased to announce that they have raised over £500 at their coffee afternoon in aid of Macmillan Cancer support.
Clients and neighbours gathered at the Bluehat offices in London Bridge last week for an array of delicious sweet treats and hot beverages. The afternoon was great fun and a great chance to catch up with each other, whilst raising money in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.
Bluehat Group were overwhelmed by the positive response from their initial email invitation and many got in touch to tell Bluehat of how MacMillan Cancer Support has helped their families and friends in the past, a moving reminder of how much these fundraisers can help so many people close to us.
One in three people will experience cancer in their lifetime and MacMillan are there every time to provide practical, medical and financial support and a push for better cancer care. For many people affected by cancer, Macmillan nurses are a valued and trusted source of expert information, advice and support, free of charge. As of December 2011, there were 3,707 Macmillan nurse posts across the UK, both in hospitals and in the community. The coffee morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event and this year the event has raised a whopping £9,590,500 that will go towards helping fund this invaluable support to cancer sufferers.
Bluehat Group would like to thank everyone who attended their coffee afternoon a helped make it a huge success. If you didn’t get the chance to attend a MacMillan Coffee Morning this year, you can still donate at http://coffee.macmillan.org.uk.
