Today was the Macmillan Coffee morning at church, where all proceeds were donated to the cancer charity. We raised £137.26 from the event, so many, many thanks to all who contributed to this great success!

The poster says ‘We like a cuppa’ and that’s definitely true of Goldthorpe people!

We worked hard to decorate the outside with bunting and balloons:

Other people worked hard at baking buns and cakes:

… whilst others worked hard at eating them!

Some worked hard at making cards to sell:

… whilst others worked hard at buying them!

We had willing helpers in the kitchen:

… and people willing to have a cuppa in aid of a good cause:

Even the youngsters joined in the fun:

Once more, this was an object lesson in working together in love. We can all contribute something to God’s work and can all help others. So often, we feel daunted by the needs we see all around us, but as the Macmillan charity have proved through their ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, by joining together in raising money we can all do so much more than we could individually. Our coffee morning was just one of many held throughout the world in aid of Macmillan, but we are sure that every little really does help!
