The BIG Wren Macmillan coffee morning

0

On Friday the 30th September, we showed our support for Macmillan’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning”, raising a grand total of £5,656.13 for the charity!

As a business built on family values, it’s really important to us to give back to our local communities by helping families who face a cancer diagnosis. In our HQ, manufacturing plants and showrooms, we gathered together and enjoyed coffee and cake in aid to help people affected by cancer.

With competitions, awards and delicious cakes, we had a great morning, and raised a fantastic amount for Macmillan!

Here are some of the highlights…

A big thanks to Nardia, AGM who help organise Norwich’s coffee morning along with wives, mums and many others who pulled on their (oven) mitts to make a difference.

Southampton Showroom managed to win the Best Display award and also managed to raise £341! – Congrats to Alice Watts and her team, plus Magda the cleaner.

The money Wren raised in one morning could help pay for a Macmillan nurse for around six weeks, which would make a massive difference to those affected by cancer
