Macmillan coffee mornings in Rugby help raise millions for charity

People across Rugby have been enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake to raise money for the Macmillan cancer charity.

Macmillan Cancer Support held their World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday, but businesses, schools and community groups have been holding events over the week.

Rugby MP Mark Pawsey was among the guests at the Rugby Advertiser’s event on Friday. He joined around 100 other fundraisers throughout the morning at the Albert Street office.

Supporters tucked into a variety of homemade cakes and took part in a raffle.

Mark said: “I was happy to once again support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.” He said he was impressed with the Advertiser’s £210 total for Macmillan.

Rugby FM presenter Jason Moss raised a mug before interviewing Advertiser staff for the radio.

Organiser Hollie Dury, who is a sales merchandiser at the Advertiser, said: “I couldn’t believe how many people came to the event.

“It was an amazing amount to raise in such a short space of time and I would like to thank everybody who contributed in any way.” Coffee mornings were also held at Clifton Chiropractic, Clifton Road, John Taylor Funeral Service, Regent Street and Warwickshire College Rugby Centre. The Town & Country Club in Henry Street, Rugby, raised £727.
