This September, we are hosting our sixth annual Macmillan Fundraising Day at Brewery Tea Room, the theme will be “A 1920’s Summer” and, weather permitting, will be a fabulous garden party, filled with stalls of pre-loved clothing, bric-a-brac and books.Imagine Downton Abbey at the beach, a summer party with the Great Gatsby, don your straw boaters and crocheted swimwear, 1920’s summer dresses and parasols. We will have beauty treatments in the summer-house and entertainment, to be announced, throughout the day. Of course we will be serving delicious home-baked cakes and scones, our usual selection of loose leaf teas and freshly ground coffees.
The past five years have been a huge success and have enabled us to raise over £20,000 for this fantastic charity that touches the lives of so many of us. We are committed to raising further funds for the Macmillan Centre at Lister Hospital and are calling on you, our wonderful customers and friends to help us in doing this.
We are in need of all sorts of donations, from bric-a-brac, good quality women’s clothing and paperbacks, to prizes for our Bottle Tombola (think lovely bubble bath and bottles of fizz!) We are also looking for some show-stopping raffle prizes – how are your powers of persuasion, can you help us to get something fabulous?! If you would like to help on the day, we would love to welcome you to the Macmillan Day Team.
As always, we couldn’t do any of this without You, our generous and supportive friends. Here’s to another brilliant event, helping our community through our actions together. We can’t wait to have a fantastic day of costumes, coffee and cake and look forward to receiving any kind donations you are able to give to make this event another big success.
As you know, we are closed at the moment for our annual summer break, and are looking forward to welcoming you through our doors once again from Tuesday 1st September.
