Dressing as everything from pirates to Mad Hatters, Sanctuary Care homes’ teams are pulling out all the stops for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
On Friday 26 September the nation will pull together to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support - serving up a brew and a slice of something sweet in return for donations.
This year the teams at Sanctuary Care’s homes have come up with some great ideas to raise funds and have fun at the same time.
Shiver me timbers, there will be eye patches galore when residents at Heathlands Residential Care Home in Pershore welcome local people to their pirate party.
Deputy manager Netty Matthews, who will be dressed as a parrot, said: “Our residents love to dress up and have fun with themed days, so they are really excited to be welcoming the people of Pershore aboard for a swashbuckling time to raise money for an amazing charity.”
Visitors will be going down the rabbit hole at Westmead Day Care in Droitwich when they enjoy an Alice in Wonderland-inspired Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.
The teams will don more relaxing attire in return for donations to Macmillan, sporting onesies, dressing gowns and slippers.
World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s largest fundraising event, where people across the country get together and have a natter over a cuppa to help the charity support people affected by cancer.
Last year a staggering 154,000 people signed up for the event, raising a record £20 million. For every £25 raised, the charity can pay for a Macmillan nurse to support a family affected by cancer for one hour, while £278 could keep a Macmillan information and support centre stocked for a month with all the resources it needs to support people.
