Raising money for Macmillan
PEOPLE have been guzzling coffee and gobbling cake – but all in a good cause.
Businesses, schools and individuals were taking part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
And among those taking part were Salisbury Guides who were joined by Mayor Penny Brown at an event hosted by Girl Guiding South West England at St Ann’s Manor.
Staff at Woolley & Wallis held a cake sale, which was well supported by other agents and solicitors in the city as well as the Tesco Metro store in Castle Street, which donated cake boxes and a selection of Danish pastries and helped the team raise £106. Salisbury Walk In Health Centre also received a visit from Cllr Brown and sold homemade cakes to raise £90.
At Glenside in South Newton neurological rehabilitation centre, service users and their families raised £127.50 in donations towards homemade cakes in the Glenside coffee shop.
And other fundraising events were held across south Wiltshire, including a fun day of activities for both Macmillan and Salisbury District Hospital’s Little Lives Appeal at Wilton Community Centre.
And Salisbury firm Doodle by Stitch had more than 40 visitors and thanks to their generosity and that of raffle prize donors JAS Hair, Paloma Lily flowers, Deborah Blyth jewellery, Milla Maddern soaps, Connock beauty products, Hunter Gatherer, Nikki Peters and Lyn Oliver, they raised £420.
