Ambitious plans are well underway to host what is being hoped to be Wolverhampton’s biggest ever charity coffee morning in aid of the MacMillan cancer charity.
Housing bosses at Wolverhampton Homes, the company who manage more than 23,000 council houses for the city council, are set to host four simultaneous coffee mornings across the city in a bid to raise cash for the popular cancer charity.
Friday 25th September marks Macmillan’s nationwide coffee morning which last year raised more than £25m to support the charity in its work to support cancer patients and their families.
With Wolverhampton Homes celebrating its 10th birthday just days later – they’ve set an ambitious target to raise £2,015 for the charity by hosting coffee mornings in Bilston, Wednesfield, Merry Hill and Low Hill.
Lesley Roberts, Chief Executive at Wolverhampton Homes said: “Giving something back to the community is something we’ve always been proud to do and cancer is one of those causes which affects so many of us in one way or another. We’ve raised tens of thousands of pounds for good causes over the past ten years but this is our most ambitious target yet!”
The coffee mornings are being held at:
- Low Hill – Low Hill Community Centre, Kempthorne Ave,
- Wednesfield – Pickering Community Centre, Pickering Road
- Bilston – Bilston Town Hall (ball room), Church St
- Merry Hill – St Josephs Church Hall, Coalway Road
Entertainment including face painting and live music are being lined up as well plenty of coffee and cake for everyone!
