On Thursday 21st November, I set about organising a fundraising coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. As a local Mum of three, I had no idea just what a successful and humbling event it would prove to be!

Having lost my Auntie to cancer in late September, I was determined to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support. The Macmillan nurses work tirelessly to help families such as mine cope through difficult times and support with the loss of a loved one.

In order to raise as much money as possible for this deserving charity, I decided to hold a raffle at my coffee morning and call upon local Horsham & Crawley businesses for their support. I was overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of so many. Donations of food, drink and gifts were kindly given.

Thanks to the help of those shops listed below, along with generous donations from friends and family who attended the event, I managed to raise a fantastic £360 for Macmillan Cancer Support. What a wonderful community we live in!

Heartfelt thanks to the shops; All That Glitters, Between The Lines, Cargo, Ceramic Shack, Jane at Body Shop, Jukka & Co. Hair Sanctuary, Junction 33, Lower Lodge Candles, Mr. Simms Olde Sweet Shop, Montezuma’s Chocolates, Sainsbury’s Stores, Esquires Coffee House & Crawley Dotcom – Tesco stores.
