Gillian Somerville, Director of HR & Corporate Services explains, 'We are proud to support Macmillan, our corporate charity, by taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning on 26 September.Our service users and staff have been unanimous in their support for the charity over the past two years and the Biggest Coffee Morning has become a fixed date in our calendar.'
She added, 'Over 120 of our sheltered housing schemes across Northern Ireland from Bushmills to Banbridge and Lisnaskea to Lisburn are taking part. We're hoping to top the £23,000 we raised last year. The Biggest Coffee Morning works very well with our service users.We provide housing, care and support and we're also about creating communities. The Coffee Morning is a great way for our tenants and staff to get together with the extra benefit of raising much needed funds for Macmillan who are supporting people with cancer.'
