Article 24 August 2022 Macmillan Campaign – Have you signed up yet? It’s not too late! We’re aiming to raise over £15,000 in September for Macmillan with our Mitie coffee mornings and we’ve already got 120 registered events – can you help us beat this? Why not host your own coffee morning? All you need to do is register at Coffee Morning and we’ll send you a pack with everything you need to get going. James Kidby, Giving Back manager: “Hosting a Macmillan coffee morning is a great way to raise money for our charity partner, as well as having fun along the way. “Help us raise £15,000 and beat last year’s target! Sadly, nearly everyone has some link to cancer, through family or friends – let’s all do their bit this September to raise funds for this worthwhile cause.” Come to the Shard’s Macmillan cake, coffee and cancer check On 21 September, 12-1pm we’ll be hosting a live Macmillan cake, coffee and cancer check event for men and women at the Shard together with our Mitie Women Can Network.
