A RUGBY garden centre is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ this month by offering customers free tea and coffee for a donation to the charity.

Blooms Rugby Garden Centre is inviting people to go along to a coffee morning it is hosting in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday, September 30 from 9am until 12noon.

Carole Berry, Manager of the garden centre on Straight Mile in Bourton-on-Dunsmore, said: “We are hosting the event as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, which is taking place nationwide. We will be providing free tea and coffee between 9am and 12noon and inviting customers to make a donation to the charity.

“We hope lots of people come along to the event and help us support this worthy cause.”

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship event. Last year (2010), more than 43,000 official coffee mornings were held, raising more than £8million for the charity. This year Macmillan is hoping to raise even more money.

Charles Byrne, Head of Corporate Partnerships and Events at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “We are very grateful for the support from Blooms Rugby Garden Centre. There are more than two million people in the UK living with cancer and every penny we raise will help us reach out to even more people who need our support.”

Macmillan Cancer Support improves the lives of people affected by cancer, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event will take place at Blooms Rugby Garden Centre on Friday, September 30 from 9am until 12noon.
