Avante Home Care and Support help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support

Last Friday the Avante Home Care and Support team took part in Macmillan Cancer Supports Worlds Biggest coffee morning by hosting a coffee morning of their own at the Mead Community centre in Sittingbourne.

The Home Care and Support team invited their clients who they care for and support, their relatives and other local community members to join in the coffee morning.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year alone the charity raised over £27 million.

Event organiser Kayleigh Barker said, ‘Over 35 people joined us last Friday to enjoy a hot drink and slice of cake. The event brought the local community together whilst raising valuable funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The generosity from Avante Care & Support staff was overwhelming with cake donations coming in thick and fast throughout the morning of the event. Raffle prizes were donated by staff members and from the local coffee club who also came along with ten of their members on Friday.

There were a few cakes leftover which we popped round to one of Avante Care & Supports care homes in Sittingbourne, Court Regis, for the residents and staff there to enjoy.

Thank you to everyone who came along and donated so generously we raised £160 for Macmillan Cancer Support’.
