Nursery Children Visit Grand Pier to Support Macmillan Fundraiser

TODDLERS and staff from Little Starz Nursery took a trip outside the classroom to celebrate the World’s Biggest Ever Coffee Morning on the Grand Pier.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.

People all over the UK host their own coffee mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan to help fund nurses, therapists and support line workers.

The Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare got behind the initiative for the first time and invited Worle-based Little Starz Nursery along for a play and a cake.

Tiffanys Tea Rooms offered scrumptious cakes for the occasion and all cake proceeds from the day will be donated to Macmillan.

Paul Charalambous, Grand Pier General Manager, said: “Macmillan cancer support is a fantastic charity and we were delighted to offer our support to such a worthy cause.

“Together with the donations from Little Stars and visitors to Tiffanys tea rooms, we hope we can help make a difference.”

Last year alone the event raised £25 million and this year Macmillan hopes to raise even more.

A spokesman for MacMillan said: “There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and we want to be there for them all.

“One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face.

“Our goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we’re there for friends and family too.”

The first ever Coffee Morning took place in 1990, since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £138 million for Macmillan.
