macmillan-fundraisingLast month, Leicester Market joined a huge number of people around the country in hosting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support – with a fantastic sum raised by the Market’s traders through donations made in exchange for coffee and cake.

A total of £413.80 was raised over the course of the morning of Friday 30th September, which saw Market traders and staff bake cakes especially for the fundraising event.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. The charity asks people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.

To date, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has raised over £8.5million – an incredible total.

Everybody, both staff and traders, at Leicester Market would like to thank all shoppers that stopped by to enjoy a coffee, cake and chat and donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.
