Brentford Funds for Macmillan Cancer
Almost three thousand pounds raised in two events
Two events for Macmillan Cancer Support in Brentford raised almost £3,000 from their World's Biggest Coffee Morning (or Afternoon Tea).
Jennie Shaw organised Afternoon Tea for Macmillan Cancer Support at St Faith's hall. She said
"We had a great afternoon entertained by Mad About Gospel, Hounslow Light Opera, St Faith's Players, Lee Dewsnap on piano, Rachel White and Claire Johnston singing, Thomas Gers on guitar and Lily O'Connor playing the violin accompanied by Lenka O'Connor; the best decorated cupcake competition was won by Kira Marks Anthony Flynn performed the role of Compere admirably and our guest of honour, David O'Connor, President of Brentford Chamber of Commerce, who kindly stepped in at very short notice, judged the cupcake decor, awarded the prizes and drew the raffle with great aplomb.
"Thanks to all the volunteers who made the whole afternoon a success and to everyone who came and drank the tea and coffee and made and ate the cakes and to the Raffle, Tombola and Gift Stall. All the contributions and donations added up to the amazing total of £1500 raised for Macmillan Cancer Support. Thank you!"
Jennifer Corbin would like to "thank all those who supported the Macmillan Coffee Morning this year, either by supplying raffle prizes, making donations, buying and selling raffle tickets, making cakes or by helping and being there on the morning. Currently, £1,386 has been raised, which will go towards paying for hours of Macmillan time, helping to make sure that no one faces cancer alone.
