They call it The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning . . . that’s the nationwide Macmillan event which will be held this year on Friday, September 27 when groups all over the country make cakes and pastries and bring out their best china (or office mugs as the case might be) in aid of the Macmillan Nurses and their care of cancer sufferers.
We can’t promise the best china, but Oldham RLFC is delighted to take part in the nationwide event by holding a Coffee Morning in the club’s sponsors lounge at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday, September 27 from 10am to noon.
We’ll put on coffee and home-made cakes and ask for donations for Macmillan, who do such a wonderful job in the community.
Anne Kearns, a member of Oldham RLFC’s management team and one of the organisers of our Coffee Morning, said:
“One in every two of us will be affected by cancer in one way or another at some time in our lives and as a club with the community at heart and a club which relies on the support of the community it’s appropriate that we should do our best for Macmillan.”
Last year the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raised an astonishing £26,914,382 nationwide.
Big cake lovers, their slogan on a TV advert is: “Let’s change lives with every slice . . . ”
Yes, let’s . . . in the Roughyeds’ sponsors lounge at the Vestacare Stadium on Friday, September 27 between 10am and noon. All welcome.
Everyone attending will be entered into a draw, the prize for which will be two tickets for the next play-off match at the Vestacare Stadium which will either be on Sunday, September 29 or on Sunday, October 6, all depending on the result of our home game against Newcastle or Doncaster on September 22. ends
