T&J pops the kettle on for Macmillan Cancer Support

T&J's latest fundraising effort raised £130 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. Once again, we rolled out the cakes, biscuits, brews and blends, when we hosted our Macmillan Coffee Morning, raising money for cancer support services.

‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is Macmillan’s largest fundraising event. Macmillan asks people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone they raised £29.5 million and, this year, they are aiming to raise even more.

Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee Morning

Macmillan Cancer Support works tirelessly to help make life easier for people facing cancer, and those closest to them. They do this in a number of ways, such as:

  • Macmillan’s own practical, medical and financial support services
  • Making it as easy as possible to access details of services available to cancer sufferers
  • Campaigning for changes in government policy and NHS cancer care

This year’s Coffee Morning is the third that T&J has put on and has become something looked forward to by the team.

In addition to the sale of homemade cakes and biscuits, we participated in the Macmillan ‘Guess the height of the cake’ competition – for which we provided our own prize. The prize available to the lucky T&J employee – whose guess was closest to the correct height of the cake – was a teddy bear which, impressively, was handmade by a fellow member of the team.

T&J Installations Director, Ian Jones, said: “Macmillan Cancer Support is a great charity – everybody can identify with this cause. We recently lost our founder, my father, Derek Jones to cancer, and this premature loss was something that everyone at T&J felt.”

“I’m very proud of the team for this achievement and I look forward to next year’s Coffee Morning, as we continue something that has now become a tradition.”
