The manufacturing community came together on September 30th 2016 to collectively raise donations for the Macmillan Cancer Trust.

Right from the moment you are diagnosed with cancer, through your treatment and beyond, Macmillan are a source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you feel more like yourself. Macmillan are millions of supporters, professionals, volunteers, campaigners and people affected by cancer. Together they make sure there’s always someone there for you, to give you the support, energy and inspiration you need to help you feel more like yourself again. We are all Macmillan.

The morning hosted at FDL received tremendous support from the local community with donations totalling £4,000, not bad for an event running from 9 to 12. We would like to thank the 166 attendees who made the morning possible and everyone who made a donation, below are just a few of the key sponsors of the morning;

This is why we chose to support this fantastic charity and why we are so proud to present the team at Macmillan with our donation and announce that next year we will be running the event again.

A series of videos have been produced from the morning, please watch, like, comment and share these videos to hopefully inspire more companies to host a coffee morning.
