On Friday the 28th of September Avonbourne Care Centre participated in the world’s largest coffee morning in order to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

During the week leading up to the coffee morning, our residents baked up a storm knowing how important the morning is to a lot of people around the UK.

Many of our staff and residents know people who have battled or who are battling cancer right now. We were grateful for the support shown by the staff, residents and relatives.

There were some amazing cakes and cupcakes, lovingly made by everyone at Avonbourne. We had a great variety for people to choose from on the day including some very yummy gluten free ‘Orange and Lemon Polenta Cake’ and some moreish diabetic friendly ‘Blueberry Muffins’.

We are delighted to announce we raised just over £100 from our coffee morning.  A big thank you to everyone who supported us on this important morning.  We hope to see you at our future events.

If you’d like to get involved at Avonbourne to help enrich the lives of our residents, we are always on the lookout for people who share our passion for care. There are many ways you can get involved, you could join our fantastic team, register to become a volunteer or get involved with the latest events and activities.
