Macmillan Coffee Morning
The Deputy Mayor of Dartford, Avtar Sandhu MBE attended a Macmillan Cancer fundraising coffee morning on 26th September 2013. The event was held at Hesketh Park Bowls Club's hall in Dartford where small stalls were set up to sell cakes, tea, coffee and small raffles were put on with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Research.
Avtar was invited to attend by the organisers and after the event he said, 'It is great to see all of the hard work and dedication the residents of Dartford are putting in to support such a great cause which I am sure is close to many of their hearts. It makes me and should make all Dartfordians proud.'
Macmillan Cancer Research ask people across the UK to hold coffee mornings for their friends, families and local residents where all of the proceeds go to the charity. In the year 2012 Macmillan raised a record 15,000,000GBP from coffee mornings and are well on their way to another good fundraising year thanks to the people of the UK.
