Thousands raised for cancer charity in the Vale
THOUSANDS of pounds was raised in the Vale as fundraisers took part in this year’s Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
On Friday and Saturday people got busy serving tea, coffee and cake and even washed a few cars all to raise some money for the cancer support charity.
Caravaners at Hampton Ferry raised an impressive £1,000 as they sold bric-a-brac alongside the refreshments.
Diana Raphael, who runs Hampton Ferry, said: “It was absolutely wonderful. We have a tight knit group of people who come most weekends.
Unfortunately this year we have lost two people on the site to cancer so they decided to do the Macmillan coffee morning.”
The event held at Cafe Rivers in Evesham Leisure Centre went down a treat raising £545.00.
Over at Inkberrow First School parents enjoyed tea and cakes and helped to raise £69.
Abbey Park First School and nursery school also had a great event and made £165.65 for the charity.
Helen Stewart, who helped to organise the morning said: ”Everyone was very generous and the cakes were delicious.”
At the Three Little Pigs shop in Pershore owner Fiona Abbott was delighted with people’s generosity as she gathered £168 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Tomlins Funeral Directors of The Leys, Evesham, will donate £530.88 to the charity after washing cars as well as selling coffee and cakes.
A slightly different fundraising effort also took place in the Vale earlier on in the month for the same charity.
The Honeybourne Bicycle Users Group took part in the MacRide in Stratford and helped to raise tens of thousands of pounds for the charity.
