Daily Prompt: Flattery will get you everywhere…

via Daily Prompt: Flattery

Sooo I held a McMillan Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for this very important charity last week, and raised more than I could possibly have imagined with friends and friends of friends.

With a bring and buy cake stall, raffle table, and some fun guessing games (supplied by McMillan) the event was a great success.

Upon leaving some of the guests said what a fantastic morning it had been and suggested another for this time next year. ‘Flattery will get you everywhere’, I said, and promised to do the same again next year.

McMILLAN WORLD’S BIGGEST COFFEE MORNING…

2016-09-29-11-47-41

This morning I had a McMillan Coffee Morning with some friends (15 of us) and we were able to raise an amazing £240 for McMillan with our cakes and raffle.

My usual soggy orange cake was on offer with biscuits and tea or coffee. 2016-09-28-14-39-25

Everyone arrived with their array of home made cakes and biscuits from carrot cake to cheese cake and muffins. We had a raffle and played the two ‘guess’ games that McMillan sent us and were all astounded when we added up our funds to find we had raised £240.00

I think it’s such an easy and fun way to raise money that once a year a day should be dedicated as ‘The World’s Biggest Fundraising Coffee Morning’ so that other charities could benefit and I think lots of money could be raised. If every business small or big held it as well, can you imagine how much money could be raised???

I will certainly do another one next year and hopefully raise even more money. 7663727_da9cd11cb5_m
