Staff and residents at Kernow House in Launceston held a charity coffee morning and bake sale on September 29, to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. In the week leading up to the sale they also had a 50 pence sale and a raffle.

Having a coffee morning is the perfect chance to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of something delicious for a great cause. The money raised helps everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.

Residents enjoyed spending time with friends and relatives, and members of the local community.  Many staff had baked lots of lovely cakes for everyone to sample and for guests to buy to take home. 

Kernow House’s coffee morning was a big success - they managed to raise £141.79 most importantly, everyone had a great time doing it.

Leigh Stanley, general manager at Kernow House Care Home, said: “Our Macmillan coffee morning has been a huge amount of fun, everyone at the home is always keen to support this fantastic charity in any way we can. We are very glad to be able to do our bit to raise further awareness for MacMillan and money for the charity.”

Richard, a resident at the home, commented: “Macmillan is such a fantastic charity and they do such amazing work in the community. We all love raising money for them and the best bit is, we get to each cake at the same time!”
