The World's Biggest Coffee Morning was recognised and enthusiastically supported in Haddenham once again, on Friday 27th September.
There were three locations in the village this year:
At 22 Rudds Lane, hosted by Mary White and her helpers. Her guests generated £946 of funds for Macmillan — a truly impressive figure.
At Haddenham Community Junior School, where pupils brought in and sold their donated cakes, their families were invited to join them for a 'bring a flask' morning on the school playground. Altogether, staff, pupils and parents managed to raise £172 — another very commendable achievement.
At Haddenham Medical Centre, where the coffee morning was hosted by Practice Manager, Ellen Solley and her colleagues. Another £152 was raised — a worthwhile achievement, given that this was the first time that the Practice had hosted such an event.
Preceding the coffee morning, Sue Young reports that the Line Dance Evening also raised £540 for Macmillan, to add to an impressive village total for the charity.
As most people will know, Macmillan organisation specialises in providing nursing care for those in the terminal stages of cancer — a wonderful charity, and one very enthusiatically supported by many Haddenham residents.
