Macmillan Coffee Morning – Success!

On the 26th of September, Byrne Group helped in the fight against cancer by supporting Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

The event first started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning and donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process. The idea was such a simple, yet effective one that it was suggested the model be taken up on a national level, and in 1991 over 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £138 million for Macmillan Cancer Support.

One in two of us will face cancer, and the money we raised at our Coffee Morning will help to make sure that no one has to face it alone.

As a Group, we raised more than £1,100 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Thank you to everyone that contributed to make it such a success!
