World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
As hopefully you will have seen in last month’s Newsletter, on Friday 26th September Breyer Group will be supporting Macmillan (Cancer) by participating in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, along with our sites at Tower Hamlets, Lambeth, LBI and Lewisham – Dean Drinkel is co-ordinating and is involving local residents.
We will be holding a Bake Off at Head Office, so those ‘Bakers’ amongst you please bring in a cake. We will then sell them to raise money. If you are unable to bake a cake you can buy one to donate and we will sell it off.
There will be a couple of Sweepstake Games for you to take part in - ‘Spot the Double Shot’ and ‘Guess How Many 100’s and 1000’s there are on the Cake’. We will be starting these off on Friday 19th and running through next week also.
Last year £20 million pounds was raised – they are hoping for more this year.
The staggering facts are that every day, 77 people in our area find out that they have cancer. By 2030 there will be 405,800 people living with or beyond cancer in Greater London – that’s enough to fill Wembley Stadium over four and a half times.
At present there are 585 Macmillan Nurses and professionals work in our area, but more are needed.
By taking part you will be helping this worthwhile cause.
If anyone else is interested for our other offices or sites and requires further information or to request a pack please go to http://coffee.macmillan.org.uk/
