We at Function Fixers are always donating as much as we can to charities, and helping to organise things like fundraising events and charity balls. As you’ve probably seen in their adverts on TV, Macmillan are running a campaign to persuade people to hold coffee moings to raise money.
Macmillan offer support to thousands of people battling cancer in the UK, and their efforts play a huge part in people’s jouey through what can be a devastating condition. If you’ve ever wanted to really play a part in the growth and development of this important side of healthcare, then now is very much your opportunity. Holding a coffee moing is easy. You simply visit Macmillans’ website, sign up for your involvement, and you will be sent a coffee moing kit completely free of charge. You can have cakes, branded napkins, special teas and coffees, lots of different things. Then, you raise the cash by exchanging these goodies in for donations, and you place the provided collection boxes in plain view.
Having your coffee moing in a function room means you have more facilities, more space, and chairs & tables etc, all provided. However, it can be tricky to persuade a venue to let you hire their space whilst paying no fee, and providing your own food and drink.
You could, depending of course upon the people you’re inviting, advertise this is a Macmillan coffee moing with an after party! Most venues will be happy to give you a grace time for your charitable event, and then they can have their end of the bargain by your guests staying on for drinks. Subject to your guest list, could this actually be a selling point and attract more numbers? Coffee and cake followed by a glass of wine or two? You could even leave those collection boxes out…
Contact Function Fixers to filter out the hassle of finding a venue in your area which is willing to accommodate your coffee moing, free of charge.
