Ninety-five of The Garden Centre Group’s restaurants will be offering visitors free tea and coffee on Friday, September 28 in return for a donation to the charity.
Costas Constantinou, Head of Restaurants for The Garden Centre Group, said: “We are hosting the coffee morning to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
“Our 95 restaurants will be providing free tea and coffee from 9am until 12noon and inviting customers to make a donation to the charity.
“We hope lots of people go along to an event near them and help us support this worthy cause.”
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship event. Last year (2011), 51,000 people signed up to the coffee morning, raising a record £10million for the charity. This year Macmillan is hoping to raise even more money.

There are more than two million people in the UK living with cancer and every penny we raise will help us reach out to even more people who need our support.”
