The team from Specsavers in Frome have gone crazy for coffee, taking part in a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event on Thursday 26 September, raising almost £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The store offered a selection of cakes and drinks for people to sample in return for a donation. In addition, the store also held a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses. This included pair of vans from Gent Street Sneakers, a bag of coffee from Coffee #1, vouchers from Eden Beauty and Coiffure, a goodie bag from Amica and a £20 gift voucher from Millers.
A word from the store director
‘The coffee morning was a fantastic success, and exceeded all expectations,’ says Specsavers Frome store director, Richard Goring. ‘We’d also like to thank Karen Allen, one of our team member’s sister, for all of her hard work during the fundraiser.’
‘Having local businesses support Macmillan Coffee morning was a bonus and we’re very grateful for their support. It was lovely to see the community come together to help us raise £269.’ Says Richard.
