Here at The Long Barn, we are very fortunate to have such a great creative space, which enables us to bring together the local community and Accrue Members in various business and social ways.
Accrue Workplaces was proud be part of holding The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September in aid of Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
‘We understand how cancer can affect people’s whole lives – health, money, family, job; everything. And, after more than 100 years of caring, we understand that the most important thing is to treat people as individuals, not patients.’
It was a great success for both our Accrue clients and the local community where everyone collaborated together and had lots of fun! It was the perfect morning where everyone enjoyed endless tea, coffee and lots of yummy homemade cakes!
Clients were extremely generous and donated some fantastic prizes for the raffle and everyone had great fun in playing the games that Macmillan provided.
A total of £358.00 was raised which will help support people in need to live their lives as fully as they can from the moment of diagnosis and whenever there most needed, Macmillan are there to help people find their best way through. Macmillan’s help is totally focused on each individual person, so everyone receives the support that’s best for them.
How did it all begin?
The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, we did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Last year alone Macmillan raised over £27 million and together we can make this another successful year. You can still make a donation by clicking on the link below:
