Over £400 raised to help Macmillan in the battle against cancer
Employees at engineering firm Nylacast’s Leicester facility recently took part in the worlds biggest coffee morning supporting cancer charity Macmillan’s fundraising event.
Many of the workforce’s engineers turned into bakers, donating homemade delights to be bought and sold on the morning. Employees from across the business got together during their coffee break to buy and taste some of the products, have a catch up and learn about the work of Macmillan in their fight against cancer.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People across the UK, including Nylacast, host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2016 over £29.5 million was raised.
The first ever Coffee Morning took place in 1990 and it was a small affair with a simple idea that guests would gather over coffee and donate to the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. This has grown over the years with the charity raising over £165.5million in the process.
