On the 4th of October 2023, our Waterloo Park Day Centre held a belated Macmillan Coffee Afternoon in place of September’s Macmillan’s World’s Largest Coffee Morning Day. Macmillian coffee mornings are a way for organisations big and small to fundraise for cancer research.

Waterloo arranged a day filled with coffee, cake, tea and tombola. A total of seventy-two individuals came from across New Directions and filled Waterloo to the rafters. The tea and coffee has been poured. The cakes have been baked and bought. And know the total tally is in. Our Waterloo Park’s fundraising efforts have been a huge success.

We can now announce that Waterloo’s efforts have resulted in a total of £547.06 raised. Every penny will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support. We are incredibly proud of Waterloo’s efforts in raising money that can now be donated during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month.
