worlds biggest coffee morning logo

Almost a year ago I wrote in the Village News:

In September 2019 a Macmillan Coffee Morning was held in the Village Hall, hosted by the lovely Jo Johnson, who had organised the event for several years. As usual it was a huge success, raising much needed funds for the iconic Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

Little did we know this was to be the last Coffee Morning hosted by Jo. Just a week after the event, to everyone’s sorrow, Jo suddenly died.  A couple of months later I was approached to see if I might be interested in organising the event in 2020. I said it would be an honour.

Then along came the pandemic and events organised and planned for 2020 all bit the dust.  2021 has been an uncertain year: I was involved in a seven-month long work project, government guidelines came and went, and came and went again, so the Coffee Morning was shelved.

 But now – how exciting – at last it is almost upon us!  The Macmillan Coffee Morning will finally take place at the end of the month at Pett Village Hall, from 9 am-12 noon in memory of Jo, and all the work she did for Macmillan Cancer Support. There will several stalls, including bric-a-brac, haberdashery and material, plants and gardening items, Christmas present ideas and a preloved handbag stall.

To start off the fundraising here is a picture of a fabulous BRAND-NEW Osprey handbag which has been donated to the Coffee Morning.
