Staff at branches of housewares chain Steamer Trading Cookshop took part in the Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on last Friday (September 26).
The World’ Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. The charity asks people across the UK – and sometimes further afield to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2013 154,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £20 million for charity.
The team at Steamer Trading Cookshop’s branch on Bridge Street in Chester held a fancy dress coffee morning, with home-made treats such as marshmallows and mini apple pies and of course tea and coffee.
Steamer Trading Cookshop managing director Ben Phillips commented: “Great effort from the team in Chester – and from all of our stores who ran Macmillan coffee mornings!”
