Here at Jangro last month, we continued our effort to raise £100,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in the annual ‘Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’. It was a great event, with a number of staff baking up delicious treats that would rival those of the Great British Bake Off! We are proud to announce that we raised a total of £350 at the coffee morning.
A big thank you to all Jangro members, staff and our group suppliers for their fantastic efforts, not only at the coffee morning, but for helping, sponsoring and encouraging us in our other recent charitable endeavours which have included sponsored walks, triathlons, marathons, race nights, raffles and auctions.
Over the summer, we also hosted a ‘Supplier Round Robin and Gala Evening’ event which proved to be another ideal time to hold a raffle and fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as offering our suppliers an excellent opportunity to meet the whole Jangro membership in one room. Getting all 44 independent companies in one room was hugely beneficial for our suppliers, saving them a lot of travelling, and offering them the chance to learn about new products, promotions and initiatives available in our network. Thanks to the generosity of the suppliers, fundraising at this event brought in over £2,600 – a fantastic amount!!
Here at Jangro, we are extremely proud to be working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and helping a charity that does so much great work. Macmillan’s ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. From the moment of diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, Macmillan is a constant source of support to people affected by cancer, including victims themselves, as well as carers, family members, volunteers and community members.
Taking the sum raised at our Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and ‘Supplier Round Robin and Gala Evening’ into account, we have now raised a grand total of more than £55,000 so far! Over the next three years we will be continuing to work hard to reach our fundraising goal of £100,000 to support this most worthy charity.
