King’s Wood Gate in Monmouth, Springfield Gardens in St Mellons, Scholars Park in Dinas Powys and Goitre Fach in St Fagans will be hosting a fundraising coffee morning on Friday September 27th from 11am to 1pm as the housebuilder bids to ensure that this year’s event is bigger and better than ever before.
Sales director Richard Lawson said the Macmillan Cancer Support event is a key date in the fundraising calendar and the five star housebuilder is delighted to be inviting people to join in with the fundraising efforts.
“Cancer touches so many people’s lives and the coffee morning is a great way for everyone to get involved in the fundraising effort,’’ said Richard. “Last year more than £26 million was raised through the coffee mornings and we hope to be part of the effort to break that barrier this year.’’
Supporting a worthwhile cause
Richard said the concept of being involved in The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has captured the imagination of everyone within David Wilson Homes. “Macmillan provides financial, physical and emotional support for people living with cancer, so that’s why we want to raise money so that everybody gets the help they need. Our sales teams are all keen to host events for visitors and those who have already moved into our developments.’’
David Wilson Homes staff will be inviting donations for coffee and cake on the day at all participating developments.
Macmillan is almost entirely funded by donations and simply cannot support the growing number of people with cancer who need them without the public’s help. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost four million by 2030.
