Great Massingham Macmillan Coffee Morning
Fantastic Result Again for the Macmillan Coffee Morning! Well done Chrissie and her Team! And…Well done Great Massingham!
‘Many thanks to all who contributed in any way for this year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning by baking, supplying prizes, donations, purchasing raffle tickets and much more.
Thanks to all who attended the morning, many of whom travel several miles and love being with our wonderful village people.
It is also great to have the children from our village school who do their own baking and selling. This year they raised £70.50 which they donated to the village total. Thanks to all staff, pupils and parents and a special well done to Harvey for your speech when you presented the money.
The total on the day was £9,861.20. Added to that is David Semkin’s £1,267.20 that he raised doing a gruelling bike ride. David lives in the village and we say a huge thank you to him for his generous contribution and great effort.
On a sad note, I must say that we have lost one of our helpers, Jacqui Yeend, to cancer. Last year, it was thanks to Jacqui and her friend’s very generous donation that took our total over £10,000. A lovely brave lady. Our thoughts go out to Barry.’
The amazing thing about the Macmillan Coffee Morning in Great Massingham is how everyone pulls together. But that’s what Massingham is all about, isn’t it? When we lose some of our dearest friends and relatives it brings home to us, even more, how important this fund raising is. Well done everyone and thank you.
