September 30th marked the date of the 2016 World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Here in the physical activity team we promote sporty coffee mornings so that the public, people affected by cancer, and their families are moving more whilst raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support; this is exactly what some of our services did!
Active Luton organised cycling challenges and sporty themed coffee mornings across all of their leisure centres. The grand total for this event was a massive £493! Well done to Active Luton! Our Berkshire service decided to organise a walking football tournament at the Braywick Sports Ground in Maidenhead to raise money. They recruited 12 teams to play in the tournament, including Portsmouth, Yorkshire, and Wiltshire.
Other coffee mornings included Northern Ireland, Wandsworth, Walsall raising £142.72, and Maidstone YMCA!
So far Macmillan Cancer Support has raised over £8 million through World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, keep up to date with the total amount raised here.
Congratulations and thank you to everyone who participated in this event.
