We’ve always liked to do our bit for charity at rijo42 and aim to do all we can to help incredibly deserving causes. One of the wonderful organisations we have championed for many years is Macmillan Cancer Support.
Cancer charities have always been very close to our heart at rijo42. We feel a particular connection to Macmillan as we have a common interest, coffee! Macmillan’s largest fundraising event is The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and as the Nations leading supplier of commercial coffee machines we like to do all we can to help.
The sad truth is that we all know someone who has been affected by cancer. It’s a devastating illness that not only affects the patient, but everyone around them. The largest cancer care and support charity in the UK, Macmillan Cancer Support provides invaluable care and support to individuals and families living with Cancer. The charity relies on voluntary donations and fundraising to generate the income to provide their exceptional services.
This year, we held our own coffee morning at rijo42 HQ to raise funds and assisted many customers, companies and individuals with their fundraising efforts. We donated the use of commercial coffee machines, coffee beans and ingredients to Bradford City Football Club.
We donated coffee beans to Tonias Café of Seaham, Fredericks Bar of Bimingham, Flavours Café Bar of Matlock, Gorse Covert of Warrington, Whitebear Marina of Adlington, Fun For Kids of Kendal, Café Jo’s of Bradford and The Dolly Tub of Wrexham. All of these companies are valued rijo42 customers; they all have rijo42 commercial coffee machines at their sites, so we were only too happy to help with donations of coffee. All of the coffee mornings were a fantastic success with our lovely customers raising superb amounts for Macmillan Cancer Support.
rijo42 also donated coffee again to Norma and Jeff Mangnall who hold a Macmillan Coffee Morning every year at their home address. They raised an incredible £733.12 and sent us a little note of thanks…
“We are writing to thank you for your kind donation for our Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support held at our home address on Friday 27th September 2013.
The coffee morning and raffle raised the sum of £733.12 this was only made possible with your kind generosity. Many thanks again.
Norma and Jeff Mangnall”
We were thrilled to be able to help all of these wonderful people raise money for such a great cause. In total the coffee mornings we supported raised well in excess of £4,000.00, money that will be put to incredible use by Macmillan. Congratulations to everyone who held coffee mornings, you should be very proud!
