Supporting the world’s biggest coffee morning
Pulse Nursing completed their own Great British Bake Off to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support on the 28th September.
Chocolate cake, cupcakes, rocky road and samosas were all on the menu. Whether baking or faking, it was a great opportunity to give back and enjoy some tasty treats at the same time.
The first ever coffee morning happened in 1990. The small event was a simple idea- guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan. It was so effective, it was repeated the following year – only this time nationally. Since then, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The charity provides financial aid, specialist healthcare services and all different kinds of support to those living with cancer. All money raised goes towards making sure that no one has to face cancer alone. Just £28 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for an hour, helping those living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
Pulse Nursing is pleased to have raised a fantastic £325, enough to pay for a Macmillan Grant. The grant will help a family affected by cancer take a holiday and enjoy some precious time together.
We’re already looking forward to next year’s spread and raising even more money for Macmillan.
