RNOH have their cake and eat it for Macmillan Cancer Support
Staff at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore took part in the world’s biggest coffee morning fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Support at the end of September. By selling a variety of cakes, cookies and biscuits washed down with lashings of tea and coffee, the RNOH managed to raise an impressive £1718.
A Macmillan nurse costs about £26 per hour so the amount raised at RNOH will cover a nurse for just over 66 hours. That’s valuable time spent helping patients and families cope though difficult circumstances.
Lots of wonderful cakes were baked – and eaten – as staff across the Trust in various departments all joined in and offered their time and money for a great cause. Peripheral Nerve Injury, Sarcoma, Corporate Affairs, the Central Booking Office and Therapies all held local events and raised cash that will go to support Macmillan staff provide on-going care for patients and families.
Tracey Mallinson, Macmillan Area Fundraising Manager, said: "On behalf of Macmillan I like to pass on a massive thank you to all those who took part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning at RNOH; whether you baked cakes, sold them on the day or enjoyed eating them. We believe no one should face cancer alone and with your support from events like World's Biggest Coffee Morning we hope no one will."
