Halifax Central raise over £100 at our big Macmillan coffee morning

 

We held our annual Macmillan coffee morning on Thursday 28th September at Queen’s Road Neighbourhood Centre. We had a number of lovely donations of home cooked

 

goodies and the morning was attended by a number of local services that HCI work with as well as residents from Park ward and surrounding communities. We raised a fantastic £104.09 which is an increase from last year too!

Looks of networking took place too and new contacts made, meaning a CREW health walk will be piloted from QRNC at the end of October and we have agreed with a local resident who is a cancer survivour to run the coffee morning together next year.

We would like to thank all how attended and especially those who donated some yummy treats.
