Local energy supplier Haven Power raised £497 at its Macmillan Coffee Morning for Cancer Research, that’s 33% more than its last year’s £365 total.
Haven Power’s employees at the company’s headquarters at Ransomes Europark baked and sold over 50 different items for the world’s biggest coffee morning. The events across Britain no doubt caused a nationwide power surge – fuelled, in part, by Haven Power – as people turned on their cookers and kettles to take part.
According to Macmillan’s own website, Haven Power’s haul of almost £500 “could help run a small information and support centre for 2 days” or “pay for the hire of a room for a year, so a cancer-self help and support group could hold regular meetings”. Helen Taggart, Macmillan Regional Fundraising Manager sampled some of the treats and informed employees, “All the proceeds will help go towards funding some new Macmillan nurses to work within Ipswich Hospitals new Woolverstone Macmillan Centre”.
Haven Power has a history of charity work as its employees take part in an array of different challenges and activities throughout the year in order to fundraise for a manor of organisations. It has just reached its yearly target of £8500 for its charity of the year Eden-Rose Coppice Trust, in support of the local Brickmakers’ Wood project.
Macmillan Cancer Support has been hosting the Coffee morning for 27 years and has now raised over £165.5 million from the event.
