On Friday 27th September one of the biggest fundraising events in the fight against cancer arrives in the Cornish village of Mousehole. The Old Coastguard will be hosting their own very special gathering as part of Macmillan’s national Coffee Morning from 10am, and all are welcome.
Macmillan’s aim each year is to host the world’s biggest collaborative and simultaneous coffee morning, in recognition of the fact that cancer affects us all directly or indirectly at some stage in our lives. Donations on the day are given to the hard-working charity in order to support cancer sufferers and their families as they face life’s toughest battle. In a remarkable joint effort, which stretches right across the UK, people come together in all kinds of places, public and private, large and small, to enjoy “a cuppa, cake and a chat”. In 2012 115,000 people signed up to the coffee morning concept, raising a record £15 million.
The Old Coastguard, Mousehole’s fabulous food destination and a welcoming watering-hole in all seasons, has eagerly jumped on board this year. Offering Origin Coffee and cakes lovingly made by the kitchen team, the morning’s indulgences will be served up by members of The Cornish Pirates rugby team.
Meanwhile the wonderful Sally Crabtree will be entertaining guests with her amazing poetry classes and performances. There will be Polgoon apple juice for the children, as well as a bubble machine in the garden.
