Macmillan Coffee Morning with friends

Time for a Brew! Our MoveNow Macmillan Coffee Morning

“Morning! Come and join us for a coffee and a cake!”

These were the words on our entire team’s lips last Friday at MoveNow Properties. Why? Once again we decided take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to raise money for Macmillan! 

This is our 4th year at raising money for such a good cause, and we weren’t alone. Across the country, businesses, agencies and individuals gathered in support of this amazing charity, raising money for those who suffer from cancer and their loved ones around them. But we know what you might be thinking: Why coffee and cake? What do either of those things have to do with cancer? Good question. Whilst popping into our estate agents for a coffee and a cake during your Friday morning trip to town might not sound like a big fundraising strategy, being part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning certainly adds up. Everyone can get involved with an event like this, providing that they have access to a kettle and a few coins to donate. The Macmillan Coffee Morning has been running for 28 years now, and has managed to raise over £200 million since that very first event. And as the cause is very close to our hearts, we knew that we had to help out again this year.

Have your cake and eat it - Macmillan

So what do Macmillan actually do? Leading cancer support specialists, Macmillan do a staggering job of supporting those with cancer and their families and friends – from diagnosis right through to treatment and beyond. Their team of nurses and researchers work tirelessly year after year to help patients with the costs, appointments and strain of dealing with the disease.

Here at MoveNow Properties, our aim this year was to beat our previous target. Back in 2017 we raised £957.97, so naturally this year we wanted to hit the £1000 mark. It wasn’t long before we were surrounded by cake stands, coffee cups and enough cupcakes to put the local bakery out of business!

How did it go?

We’re thrilled to announce that on Friday we raised over £1000 for the Macmillan cause! We absolutely smashed our target, and enjoyed an entire day of coffees, teas, cakes, snacks, and plenty of laughs to boot.

Nearly every person will face cancer in one way or another in their lives. We have to say a massive thank you to everybody who came along and donated – every single penny counts, and we’re so grateful to have such supportive customers for events like today. Your money will make a huge difference to the lives of those touched by cancer, and we’re forever indebted to you all. Now we can’t wait to hear Macmillan’s final total, and do it all again next year!
