Oldham Leisure Centre and the Chadderton Wellbeing Centre jointly raised over £1,500 at their Macmillan Coffee Mornings.

The event at Chadderton was organised by Jenna Banville and raised £779.41.

Jenna said: “It’s the first year we hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning at Chadderton but we will definitely be doing it again next year. Everyone had a great at time, we had cakes brought in by both staff and customers and our volunteers from the Falls Prevention group were so wonderful on the day. Everyone was so generous.”

The final amount raised by Oldham Leisure Centre is still being counted but they estimate over £800 has been raised for the charity.

The event there was organised by Jeannette Ghayour and saw lots of people coming along to the centre to support. They had an extra special cake that was auctioned off with the winning bid of £25 coming from Facebook.

Jenna added: “Thank you to everyone who donated, attended or supported us in any way, we really appreciate it.”
