Gwinnell Funeral Directors supports Macmillan Cancer support with cheque for £3,450

R Gwinnell & Sons were delighted to present Macmillan Cancer Support a cheque for £3450.00 which was raised on Saturday 6th August 2016.

It This was raised as part of their coffee morning with a twist.  Not only serving delicious coffee and cakes and light lunches, they also had an ‘As New’ table top sale, Craft Stalls, Games, Competitions, a raffle and to top this Heaven on Earth performed. 

Gerry who is employed by R Gwinnell & Sons said that it was a fabulous day.  The atmosphere was so happy and relaxed and everyone who helped had the same aim, we all wanted the maximum amount we could raise for this worthwhile cause.

If it wasn’t for the generosity from so many people, those who baked cakes, those who gave ‘New’ goods for the sale, the companies that gave such wonderful raffle prizes, those who helped on the day and for St James’ Church for their help in many ways,  we would never have raised so much. 

A very big thank you to everyone involved.  We know that the amount we raised will go towards helping the lives of those battling with cancer a little easier.
