Macmillan Coffee mornings across Blackpool Teaching Hospitals help to raise £2,366.64 in funds for cancer patients.
The Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Centre hosted a coffee morning and staff working at Blackpool Victoria Hospital brought in their delicious cakes to enjoy a treat with colleagues whilst raising funds for an important cause.
The games, cakes and donations were all totted up and Macmillan were delighted to receive the funds which make a huge difference to patient care and the service they provide.
Macmillan Coffee morning is a national event helping to raise money set up in 1990. Since then it has grown massively and has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Helen Bright, Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Manager said: “We are so grateful to all staff, friends and groups that made the effort for Coffee Morning.
“Fundraising makes a huge difference to the service we offer to cancer patients and it is such a lovely way to raise money by doing something small and enjoying a coffee and a cake with friends.
“We would like to thank our hospital teams for their amazing efforts and The North Euston Hotel at Fleetwood with Healthier Fleetwood and Fleetwood Trust who raised £649.65. We also supported The Village Hotel’s coffee morning last Thursday and they raised £708.20.”
Jackie Brunton, End of Life Lead at the Trust added: “It was fantastic to see so many teams getting in the spirit.
“As a Trust we do benefit greatly from money raised. Macmillan Cancer Support fund services, education and resources provided through our Macmillan Information and Support Service.”
