Residents in Doncaster raised a record breaking £90,000 at this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event for Macmillan Cancer.
Doncaster business owner Steve Patania, of Esquires Coffee House Wheatley, won this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning Trophy for the third year running after raising over £3,000.
Local fundraising manager, Amy Hebdon commented, “I’m absolutely thrilled and extremely proud of the Doncaster community. Last year we raised a whopping £60,000 across Doncaster and we were hoping to beat it this year but I can’t believe we’ve beaten it by £30,000!”
She added, “I really can’t say thank you enough to everyone who helped support coffee morning – the people who help organise a coffee morning, the people who attend their local coffee morning and the people who help donate raffle prizes etc. Without these wonderful people, we wouldn’t be able to raise such an incredible amount. Sadly the number of people being diagnosed with cancer is increasing every year and that means Macmillan’s support for people living with cancer is in more demand than ever”.
