H&T Pawnbrokers and Macmillan

Last Friday, H&T Pawnbrokers handed over a cheque for £5,500, collected for Macmillan. This money was raised by taking part in the World’s Biggest Macmillan Coffee Morning. Tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits were baked, bought and shared in over 185 H&T Pawnbrokers and Discount Secondhand Jewellery stores throughout the UK – from Portsmouth in the South to Dundee in the North.

It was a truly national fundraising event: There were more than 20 simultaneous coffee mornings taking place in H&T stores in Scotland, over 45 in the North of England, nearly 20 in the Midlands and in excess of 100 in Greater London and the South of England. Hard-working staff and generous customers throughout the UK dug deep for this worthy cause.

John Nichols, H&T Pawnbrokers CEO, said: ‘Macmillan’s goal is to ensure nobody has to face cancer alone. We support this and wanted to do everything possible to raise funds for this charity which helps so many people. So we pledged to raise £5,000 to help this charity – a target which we are delighted to have exceeded. The funds our staff and customers raised could pay for both a Macmillan nurse and a physiotherapist for a month as well as run a Macmillan information centre for a day. We’re pleased to have contributed towards providing medical, practical, emotional and financial support for patients and families hit by cancer. ‘

Lynn Hyder, Regional Corporate Business Manager for Macmillan says, ‘H&T were committed and enthusiastic in their fundraising endeavours, and we’re very grateful for the funds they have raised. Every pound helps us to be there for someone with cancer when they need us most - from the moment they’re diagnosed, through their treatment and beyond.’
