Every year, the residents of our community come together to organise a Macmillan coffee morning fundraiser, a heartwarming event held on the 29th of September 2023. Held at Farnham Common House, this gathering serves as a testament to the strong bonds within the community, and it’s all for a noble cause—raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The invitation was extended not only to our local neighbours but also to family members and dedicated staff, creating a vibrant atmosphere. With warm beverages, delectable homemade cakes, and heartfelt conversations on offer, everyone was keen to get involved in support of a great cause. What made it even more special was that all the cakes were lovingly prepared by our talented in-house chef and our residents themselves.
In the end, the results were great, a total of £105 was raised on the day. Resident Ann W. shared her thoughts, saying, “It’s lovely for everyone to come together and help raise funds for such an important charity, one that is close to the hearts of so many people.”
Kayleigh Jones, our Lifestyle and Wellbeing Lead, expressed her pride too, noting, “Raising funds for a charity chosen by our residents that is so important to them, they were over the moon when the final total was announced, a very proud moment for them all.”
This annual tradition brings joy, camaraderie and meaningful contributions to an exceptional cause.
