Macmillan Coffee Morning

Stagecoach staff raise money for Macmillan at World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event

Stagecoach South West have announced they will be taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning this year by hosting a number of coffee mornings at their regional bus depots, on Friday 27th September, to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Depot staff in Exeter, Plymouth, Barnstaple and Paignton will be able to enjoy a refreshing morning cuppa with colleagues, along with a delicious selection of homemade cakes and treats, all of which will be available for a small donation to Macmillan.

The coffee mornings will help raise vital funds for the national charity, which provide physical, financial and emotional support to people across the UK affected by cancer. Since 1990, fundraising events such as these have generated over £200 million in donations.

Bob Dennison, Managing Director of Stagecoach South West, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Macmillan for another year and helping to raise money to support the amazing work they do to improve the lives of people living with cancer and their loved ones. I want to encourage all our staff and team to get involved on the day and enjoy a warm drink or homemade treat at their depot to help raise funds for this worthy cause.”

In September 2018, we raised £500 at the Exeter depot in aid of Macmillan, so it would be fantastic to exceed last year’s fundraising amount at this year’s event. We encourage everyone to donate what they can and we hope to be able to host more of these charity events in the future.”
