Mansfield opticians brew up to support cancer charity
Staff at the Mansfield Specsavers have recently raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event with a twist.
The team at Specsavers on West Gate in Mansfield donned their weirdest, most wonderful hats and welcomed people into the store to join their Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
In return for their donations, customers could enjoy a selection of tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits, homemade by the Specsavers Staff. Over the course of the coffee morning on Friday 26 September, £88 was collected for the cancer charity.
A cause close to people's hearts
There are more than 200 different kinds of cancer and one in three people will be diagnosed with the disease. There are currently two million people living with cancer in the UK and this figure is set to double by 2030.
Imogen Hoyle, store director at Specsavers in Mansfield, said: ‘We all know someone who has been affected by cancer so it’s important to support charities that do such fantastic work to help sufferers and their families.
‘We are thrilled that our loyal customers did what they do best and supported us in raising as much money as possible for Macmillan.’
