Spire Solicitors LLP raise over £1500 for Macmillan Cancer Support
On Monday 26th September, Spire Solicitors LLP helped to raise over £1500, by supporting The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Tables full of tempting cakes and scones, very generously donated by the local WI, were on sale throughout the morning at the Town Hall in Aylsham.
Sophie Harvey, Partner at Spire Solicitors LLP comments:
‘I would like to thank everybody that helped to make our coffee morning a huge success. A special thank you to the local WI for providing the coffee and cake, to the local businesses that donated raffle prizes and to Smith & Pinching for all their help with organising the event. I am thrilled with the amount raised and hope that it will help Macmillan Norfolk to continue with the great work they do in supporting local people affected by cancer.’
Every day in Norfolk 15 people hear the devastating news they have cancer. All the funds raised will be used by Macmillan to fund vital cancer services for local people affected by cancer, from specialist cancer nurses to grants for cancer patients with money problems.
£1536 could fund a Macmillan nurse for a week, enable the charity to give a grant to someone affected by cancer to help heat their home when they need it the most and keep a typical Macmillan information and support centre stocked with all the information and resources it needs for a month.
Nicola Clark Macmillan’s fundraising manager for West Norfolk and West Suffolk, said:
“Sadly the number of people being diagnosed with cancer is increasing every year and that means Macmillan’s support for people living with cancer is in more demand than ever. No one should have to face cancer alone and events like this help us be there for people and their family when they need us most.”
