National care provider Avery Healthcare again put its full support behind the Macmillan Coffee Morning and raised over £6,500 from its group of care homes and independent living locations.
The company’s professional chefs were joined by residents to bake a sumptuous range of cakes and biscuits, and the homes welcomed the families and friends of both residents and staff, plus visitors from their local communities, to enjoy a most sociable and tasty morning in support of this good cause.
Ellen Finn, Fundraising Manager said, “Macmillan are incredibly grateful to Avery Healthcare for once again taking part in our World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and raising a staggering amount of money. With the numbers of people being diagnosed with cancer each day, we need these vital pounds now more than ever. We have hundreds of Macmillan professionals working in medical and community settings across the country, from nurses to GPs, support workers and nutritionists, supporting people living with cancer and the medical, practical and emotional effects of a diagnosis.
Avery Healthcare’s generous donation will help us to fund a Macmillan Nurse for over a month, allowing them to reach the lives of people living with cancer and support them and their families.”
