Romford's Mercury Mall raises more than £700 with Macmillan Coffee Morning


On Saturday residents took a break from their shopping to enjoy cakes and support The Mercury in raising money for Macmillan.


Visitors to The Mercury Mall in Romford were invited to have a cake and a cuppa on Saturday, September 28th as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.


As well as a mouth-watering selection of cakes baked by members of the Mercury’s staff and Breakfast Club ladies, there were also knitted and crocheted novelty cakes as soft toys for children and handmade cards.  


“Our Macmillan coffee morning was amazing, we are so grateful to our retailers, Breakfast Club members and work colleagues for their donations and brilliant cake making contributions.  We were overwhelmed with the array of cakes; it looked delightful. Our Breakfast Club members and staff helped on the day serving and worked tirelessly throughout. It really warmed our hearts to witness the generosity of support and contributions from our customers and friends.  We not only offered tea and cake, but managed to spend time to chat, listening to their own stories and experiences was a pleasure.  Many people came back for seconds and took more cake home for their families; recipes were even exchanged.  Every piece of cake sold, and although we were a little tired by the end, we were buzzing from how well the day went, especially when we knew the staggering amount that we raised for Macmillan.  We are already discussing ideas for next year!  I would like to thank everyone who supported our event, we could not have done this without you.”, said Karen Sach, Helpdesk Ambassador of The Mercury.


“Last year we raised an amazing £265.35 and this year a staggering £743.20 proving, once again, just how generous our shoppers can be.” Centre retailers McDonald’s, BB’s Coffee & Muffins, Wilko, Asda, Subway, Premiere Cinema and Godfrey’s The Bakers also contributed to the event by donating doughnuts and cakes.
