M&S Culverhouse Cross raises more than £3,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support

M&S Culverhouse Cross colleagues joined millions across the country taking part in Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 27 September, helping raise vital funds for people living with cancer.

Celebrating a particularly special 10th anniversary of the M&S Food headline partnership, the store has raised more than £3,000 during the month, from Macmillan product sales and Friday’s coffee morning.

As well as Friday’s event, stores up and down the country have been helping to fundraise through in-store activity, donating 10 per cent from sales of special Macmillan products, and with M&S Cafés donating 5p from every coffee and slice of cake sold.Many stores also launched a Wall of Support for the first year, which collectively are now adorned with hundreds of thousands of kind messages of support.

Adam Nash, Senior Corporate Partnership Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, added: “M&S has partnered with Macmillan since 2010 and in that time, over £16.3 million has been raised as official partner to Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. All donations from M&S go towards funding professional roles in hospitals and within the local community, such as nurses, occupational therapists and dieticians, whose income is almost entirely reliant on the generosity of public donations, so we can’t thank colleagues and customers enough for their generosity and determination.”
