COFFEE & CAKES AT MEDICX FOR MACMILLAN
COFFEE and cakes were the order of the day for MedicX Pharmacy practices across the country to celebrate Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
There was great support from staff and patients as everyone enjoyed delicious treats to help raise vital funds for the cancer charity.
At MedicX Pharmacy Ashton under Lyne, team members raised more than £132 with fabulous home-made cakes which were so popular there were even requests for recipes!
MedicX Pharmacy Ashton under Lyne is located in the Ashton Primary Care Centre on Old Street and there was great support from nurses and care centre staff; the Macmillan Nurse also dropped into the pharmacy to offer special thanks.
Pharmacy Manager Kay Bowden said: “Together with our patient communities and healthcare partners, MedicX Pharmacy is delighted to have taken part in Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
“Many thanks to everyone who got involved, whether making cakes or eating them. The day was a huge success with the people of Ashton giving very generously to Macmillan Cancer Support.”
