Fundraising will be a piece of cake for Melksham!

MAKE a difference and raise cash for charity, simply by drinking coffee and eating cake this Friday and Saturday. 

Macmillan Cancer Support is hosting its ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ with fundraisers around the country serving up coffee and tea and cake, all in aid of the charity. In 2012, 115,000 people signed up to the coffee morning, raising a record £15million.
