Leigh store Macmillan Coffee Morning

2nd October 2015; UK: Last week, H&T Pawnbrokers took part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning. Tea, coffee, cakes and biscuits were baked, bought and shared in over 190 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 40 in the North of England, more than 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.

Highlights include:

- Head Office in Sutton raised over £170 thanks to popular bacon sandwiches sold on the day
- The Clapham store involved local businesses, and managed to get free cakes for their event from Co-op in return for a Macmillan donation
- Liverpool store fundraising event with music, games, raffle and auction for signed memorabilia in Birkenhead pub raised £1,885
- North West stores raised over £700

John Nichols, H&T Pawnbrokers CEO, said: ‘Macmillan’s goal is to ensure nobody has to face cancer alone. We want to do everything possible to raise funds for this charity which helps so many people. Last year we raised £5,500 at our Macmillan Coffee Mornings and are proud to have exceeded this amount this year. We are pleased to be contributing towards providing medical, practical, emotional and financial support for patients and families hit by cancer. ‘

H&T Pawnbrokers is supporting Macmillan in many of their stores nationwide throughout 2015. Over the summer, staff took part in The Big Slim challenge to get fit and raise money. In total, they raised over £6,000 and lost over 30 stone in weight! In addition, the pawnbroking and secondhand jewellery stores are holding a range of activities including book and plant sales; sporting challenges and themed fancy dress days.
