Money for Macmillan Cancer Support

Published: Friday, 13 October 2023

BOATERS and visitors flocked to the Macmillan Coffee Morning held at White Mills Marina on the Nene last Friday.

They dug deep and raised a magnificent £1,350.

It was the eighth Macmillan coffee morning that the family-run marina has held since it opened for business in 2016, and each year the previous year’s total has been smashed.

MacmillanAmazed by generosity

Commenting on the successful outcome of the annual event, Organiser Kay Elderkin enthused:

“We absolutely love being a part of the world’s biggest coffee morning and are always amazed by people’s generosity and kindness, from the folks that had stalls and the friends who baked cakes and volunteered during the day through to the businesses who donated raffle prizes and the people that actually bought raffle tickets.

"It’s a terrific cause and one which White Mills Marina is totally dedicated to supporting. We are already looking forward to next year’s event.”
