Coffee and Cake in the Square
Visitors, shoppers and cake lovers alike enjoyed a city centre Macmillan ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ on the 27th September 2019 in Queen Square Wolverhampton. The urn was on and cakes available from 10am to 4pm.
In addition to support from M&S, Boots, Virgin Money, The Wulfrun Centre and Pound Bakery local businesses and cafes Wulfrun Wools & Crafts, Thornes Solicitors, K Teas Cakes, and The Duke of York donated refreshments and cakes to this Fantastic event. The trailer to serve from was donated by TCM Trailers from Lichfield.
Shaun Boyce, BID Projects Manager commented: “We are very proud to support Macmillan with city-centre businesses and visitors involved in fundraising for this great charity and am bowled over by the generosity. The weather was against us being a very wet and windy day but we still were able to raise £803.02 it was the 5th Year we have held the event either Queen Square or Dudley Street”
Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning started in 1990 with a local fundraising group who decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle, as they might normally do, but donate the cost of their coffee and cakes to Macmillan. That seed of an idea has grown to become a nationwide event that has raised over £200 million through coffee mornings in homes, offices and businesses throughout the UK and Wolverhampton City Centre businesses are keen to do their bit.
