Started in 1990, ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. The charity asks people across the UK – and further afield – to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan.
In 2011, an incredible 51,000 people signed up to the coffee morning, raising a record £10 million (Sterling).
This year the Jayne Jackson Beauty Centre in Boliqueime held its first coffee morning last Saturday raising just over €1,000.
Clients donated raffle prizes and baked cakes to sell on the day and the Beauty Centre was ‘all shook up’ to the sounds of Elvis impersonator Rikky Ryan.
Organisers Jayne Jackson and Fiona Lang of Portugal Property Collection said: “We were absolutely overwhelmed by the amount of support and would like to thank everyone involved. Watch out 2013!”
