Excitement brewing for Ankerside charity coffee morning
Ankerside Shopping Centre is popping the kettle on for visitors this week, as it’s set to host a brilliant, two-day fundraising event to help raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
On Friday 27 September, the Macmillan fundraising team will be at the shopping centre in full force from 11am to 4pm to help generate much-needed funds. Equipped with hundreds of raffle tickets, shoppers will have the chance to buy as many as they want to be in with a chance of winning top prizes, including a Radley purse, toiletry gifts sets, a fitness tracker and for any keen bakers, a James Martin hand mixer.
The main event will be the Macmillan Coffee Morning taking place on Saturday 28 September from 11am until 4pm. For a small donation, visitors will be able to have a go on a tombola, raffle and also a water or wine game.
Members of the Ankerside Rangers will also be attending on Saturday to lend their support throughout the day and help get the fundraising furore going.
Mark Burbridge, centre manager at Ankerside, is hoping for another great success with its eighth edition of the event. “The Macmillan Coffee Morning is fantastic campaign that really unites the people of Tamworth and we are always so impressed by the generosity shown by Ankerside’s shoppers.
“We’d like to invite the community to take part in some brilliant fundraising activities and help us raise lots of money for the charity,” Mark added. “It also serves as a great opportunity to speak with the Macmillan team about what support and services are available in the area.
“We hope this weekend will be another big hit and we look forward to meeting many of our visitors and supporting this great cause.”
