Avanta business centres recently joined fundraisers from across the country to help raise more than £2,600 in supporting the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
The event, which took place on Friday, September 30, simultaneously at each of Avanta’s 18 UK business centres was attended by external meeting room and internal office space clients.
“We are always delighted to help raise awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support and our fund raising activities this time were helped substantially by the generous prizes donated by clients and suppliers which we were able to raffle or auction off,” comments Geraint Evans, sales & marketing director for Avanta.
“The donated prizes ranged from private jet flights and restaurant dining to iPods and wine, but each and every one demonstrated the wholehearted support that our clients were willing to give to this great cause.”
The monies raised from the event will be used to fund Macmillan’s support services for people with cancer and their families. Last year over 43,000 people held a coffee morning in support of Macmillan which raised over £8million for good causes.
“In addition to being a fundraiser this event provided a great networking opportunity for both clients and staff alike and this could be the perfect template for future fundraising events at our business centres,” Evans concludes.
