Macmillan Cancer Support

11th June 2014

A BIG thank you to everyone who came along to our ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ on Friday.

We’re delighted to announce that The Balcony Cafe and Crossgates raised £115.50 for Macmillan Cancer Support on the day!

On Friday, the Balcony Café served Crossgates’ shoppers a variety of cakes in return for a donation to Macmillan. Lip-smacking sweet treats included strawberry cream cakes and vanilla puff slices! What’s more, Reece Parker and Debbie McCaffery from Crossgates undertook an Ice Bucket Challenge to add to the total monies raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.

“We were delighted to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning helping to raise funds for such a fantastic charity. It was great to see so many people taking part and having so much fun! A huge thank you to everyone who came along and donated.”

Sophie Stephenson, Group Marketing Manager

The Ice Bucket Challenge, a viral craze that began this summer, has encouraged people to pour icy water over themselves while being filmed and then donate to the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Association. This craze has since helped to benefit other charities too, including Macmillan.
