British Garden Centres is delighted to have raised an impressive £6370.79 for the Macmillan Coffee Morning last month. This charitable event, organised annually by Macmillan Cancer Support, aims to raise funds to help improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
The Macmillan ‘world’s biggest’ coffee morning happened across the UK on Friday, September 29th and this year, the 62 stores across the largest UK family-run garden centre group opened their doors to welcome customers for a delightful cup of coffee or tea, accompanied by an array of delicious sweet and savoury treats baked by the restaurant teams.
Top performing centres that raised the most included Pulborough, Chapel, Carr Gate, Bold Heath and Woody’s Restaurant and Bar, based in Woodthorpe Leisure Park which the Stubbs family also owns. As well as coffee, cake, and savouries to be enjoyed, customers were able to try their luck on the tombola, buy raffle tickets and try to win prizes on offer at individual centres.
Macmillan Cancer Support is crucial to families and offers medical advice, emotional assistance, and financial aid to those affected by cancer.
Ricky Towers, Group Restaurant Director at British Garden Centres said: “Well done to all our centres and customers who came together to support the Macmillan Coffee Mornings for this important cause. This annual event serves as a fundraising opportunity and fosters a sense of community in each British Garden Centres store. By hosting these coffee mornings, our garden centres have not only showcased their commitment to creating beautiful outdoor spaces but also demonstrated their dedication to making a positive impact on the lives of those affected by cancer.”
