It’s safe to say that International Forwarding (IFL) enjoyed taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning last Friday 27 September in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, raising £205 in total.
It was great to see the boardroom fill up with a buffet of biscuits, cakes, sponges, cupcakes, Viennese whirls, Swiss – and sausage – rolls. Tea and coffee were also served, all for a donation.
Trisha Slater, IFL Operations Director, said: “We partake in this as it is very close to our hearts, with a couple of colleagues having experienced cancer first hand and a lot of us have family and friends who either have gone through it or are going through it.
“It was a very enjoyable day. So many of the staff really made an effort with their baking and the results were very tasty indeed.” Each and every one of the staff were very generous with their donations and even a couple of customers on site donated, too.
Nearly £3 million has been raised for the charity so far this year. In 2018, the UK-wide event raised £26,914,382 to help people facing cancer. Macmillan has been running its Coffee Morning since 1990 and has raised more than £200 million in that time.
Fundraising through teamwork and individual sponsorship is an ongoing and important part of International Forwarding Ltd.
Over the years, IFL has supported both local and national causes, from kitting out our local under-8s football team to sponsored runs and swims for various charities to our MD doing the Ice Bucket Challenge in a suit to raise funds for motor neurone disease.
