The World's Biggest Coffee Morning was on Friday 30th September and what a morning it was in Formby. Lots of fantastic cakes and biscuits all over our Bubble. We only managed to get around a few but, out of the ones that we knew about, the total raised in Formby was £3,580.63! So a huge well done to everyone that took part and made a huge effort for this amazing charity.

Acorn Insurances’ Grand Macmillan Charity Success - £1,000 Acorn Insurance, based in Formby, has raised over £1,000 for Cancer Research with a delicious Macmillan Coffee Morning. Held at their headquarters in Formby, on Friday the 30th of September, staff took to their kitchens to bake an array of homemade goodies which were sold on the day, to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research. Over £1000 was raised by staff alone at Acorn Insurance, with every penny raised going directly to Macmillan Cancer Research. Acorn Insurance is always looking for ways to help to raise money for charity events as well as support the local community. Heather Lynn, Team Manager, who organised the Coffee Morning awarded Frances Jones, with Acorn’s very own Best Baker award, for her fluffy chocolate toffee cupcakes, praised for their taste, texture and rise from a panel of judges on the day.

Formby Pool - £217 raised A great morning at Formby Pool and they still have a signed fitness shirt up for raffle to add to this total. The shirt is signed by Mark Cavendish and Steve Cummings (English olympian road racing cyclists).

Firwood Timber & Builders Merchants - £433.63 Firwood's showroom had been transformed to look like an old fashioned tea room and looked fantastic! Complete with a teddy bear having a tea party and the cakes were great too!

Formby Fitness - £300 raised A great fun morning with a fantastic atmosphere. We would like to thank, again, everybody that baked the cakes, helped us out during the morning and turned up to show support. You're all amazing!!! The Formby Fitness Team Unfortunately the Bubble didn't make it in time and look at those cakes we missed!

The total for this years event is now at a staggering £8.6m and still rising. The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. They ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone they raised £25 million and this year they are aiming to raise even more. The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time, nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £138 million for Macmillan.
