The Macmillan Coffee Morning July 2019

Brownhill Surgery takes great pride in assuring that we promote Cancer Awareness at the highest levels. It is important to the Practice that our patients are aware of all the benefits of having regular check ups and attending appointments for screening such as cervical, mammograms and bowel amongst others. We also like to do our bit to help raise money for Cancer Services which can help, not only people dealing with cancer but also for their families and friends who can also be affected mentally and emotionally.

So, on Thursday 25th July, the Practice opened our doors once again for the Macmillan Coffee Morning event. The weather was very hot but this did not stop you from popping in. We asked for donations of cakes, raffle and tombola prizes. Once more we had a huge response from our patients and friends of Brownhill and our family members. As well as the above, we also had the lovely June Lewis selling hand knitted toys and decorations as well as aprons. Mrs Lewis donated all the money she made to our Coffee Morning. Amonst all the fantastic cakes was a Macmillan designed cake donated by Mr Threlfall which took pride and place in the centre of the cake table. We also had cancer awareness boards up in the Surgery for people to view and leaflets available upon request.

The event was a huge success and we made a whopping £572.50.

We would like to thank everyone who donated cash, prizes and cakes. Also, to everyone who purchased raffle tickets, and to the staff, friends and family members who came down to help on the day and helped with the preparations. This event would not work if it wasn't for your continued support. There are too many people to thank individually but you know who you are!!!. But we would like to say a big thank you to our little helpers Katie and Jessica who came down and did a fantastic job of running the tombola stall and making sure nearly everyone was a winner.

We will no doubt be doing it all again next year. So once again, THANK YOU VERY MUCH from all the staff at Brownhill Surgery.
