Mold optician's fundraising for Macmillan hits sweet spot
Specsavers in Mold served coffee and homemade cakes this Month to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Eight budding Mary Berrys from Specsavers on High Street put their best bake forward, as they took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning – a national fundraising initiative held by Macmillan Cancer Support.
Support for those battling cancer
Last year the campaign raised more than £20m. for the charity which provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support for those battling cancer, and pushes for a better cancer care system.
Specsavers store manager Katy Owen thanked the people of Mold for getting behind the cause, coming along to the store and showing their support: ‘The team here was practising their baking skills for weeks in advance, and was looking forward to welcoming people into the store for cake and a coffee. We'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and donated so generously.
A win win for everyone
‘It was all about local people coming together to do their bit for the cause, and we got to drink coffee and eat cake while we were at it. It was a win win for everyone.
‘Most of us know someone who has received help from Macmillan, and so we know what a difference the charity makes to the lives of those people.’
