Macmillan coffee morning 2013

This morning we held a Macmillan Coffee Morning in our local church.  We had a cake stall, a raffle and served tea and coffee and biscuits.  We had a banner and a sign outside the church to advertise it.

Two of our friends ran the raffle.  We had Macmillan raffle tickets and our own raffle today, so we did a BOGOF.  For every Macmillan raffle ticket purchased you got a strip for today’s raffle free.  The raffle raised £82.

Two other friends ran the cake stall.  We had Rocky Road, Flapjacks, Victoria Sponge Sandwich, Tea Loaf, Fairy Cakes, Rock Buns, Fairings biscuits, as well as jams and marmalade, eggs and apples to sell.  This stall made £58.25.

Neil and I made the tea and coffee in the vestry end of the church.  We didn’t charge but asked for donations.  People are often very generous this way and we took £83.70 in donations.

As you can see Neil and I are wearing our rather unglamorous Macmillan Tee shirts.  Macmillan supply quite a lot of material for support and we had bunting, balloons, posters and table cloths all in Macmillan green.

We had a reasonably good turnout, although perhaps not as many people as last year.

The total amount we took was £223.95, so all in all a good effort.
