North Cornelly Macmillan Coffee Morning

On Friday September 29th, I held a coffee morning at North Cornelly Public Hall as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

A good turnout represented the strong community spirit of the area and the coffee, biscuits and cakes were all contributed by supporters and friends. Raffle prizes were also generously donated and £181.50 was raised. All those present were delighted to know that they were part of a huge network of coffee mornings dedicated to a cause which touches the lives of many people.

Ted Davies, (picture below right with Gwyneth Poacher and myself) a local historian, gave an entertaining talk at the event which highlighted many aspects of life in the locality, which would otherwise be in danger of being forgotten.

People in our own area can make a difference and each coffee morning raises vital money needed to fund the work for people living with cancer. The sum raised from this one coffee morning demonstrates the commitment of the North Cornelly people. The organisers of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will have been delighted to receive this sum of money.

My personal thanks go to all who took part and supported the event.
