The Vernon Building Society’s six branches in Bramhall, Hazel Grove, Marple, Reddish, Poynton and Stockport will be holding a Macmillan Coffee Morning during the week commencing 24th September to raise funds for people facing cancer.
The funds raised for Macmillan will help to fund the charity’s nurses, provide cancer information, help with financial support, the Macmillan Support Telephone Line and help the charity be there when people need their support most.
Each branch will be putting on coffee, tea and cakes and welcome members of the public to pop in for a quick coffee and a slice of cake whilst making a donation to the cause.
Last year was a great success with the Vernon raising £1,040.
Tracey Wright, Customer Service Manager of the Hazel Grove branch, said: “We had a very successful coffee morning with everybody contributing towards homemade goods, which raised very valuable funds for an amazing cause.”
Hazel Grove managed to raise just over £111 for the charity.
Visit your local branch to find out when they will be hosting their morning or call the branch directly.
