Beacon is taking part by hosting the Beacon Coffee Morning here at our head office in York tomorrow in support of Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Not only are the Beacon team putting the kettle on, our supply partners are joining in the fun as well donning pinnys and serving up cakes.  With Twinings providing the tea, Mathew Algie the coffee, Lockhart Catering the serving urns, Mondelez the cups and Delice de France the cakes we have everything we need for a successful coffee morning.

Last year 115,000 people hosted coffee mornings and raised a record £15 million. This year over £4 million has been raised so far and we will be contributing to this total with generous donations from our suppliers and customers for raffle prizes and auction items. Plus the Beacon team will be getting their bake on to raise even more money through cake sales.

We have range of prizes up for grabs including High Street vouchers, M&S and Amazon vouchers, cinema tickets donated by Nestle, The Safer Food Group, Airangel and Best Western. Champagne, wine, decanters and glasses donated by Arthur & Radley, Forth Wines and Best Western. Toiletries and bath robes donated by Gilchrist & Soames, Aslotel, Alliance and Mitre. Plus a Morphy Richards food mixer, a Toshiba DVD Player, Manchester United memorabilia, go karting tickets, golf parasols and…a cuddly toy donated by Colour Bond, Toshiba, Manchester United, York Motorsports Village, BOC and Peeks.

We will also be auctioning off over £1,000 worth of items including:

  • A Year's supply of chocolate from Nestle
