Bank puts the kettle on for cancer charity


Barclays in Chesterfield is holding a caffeine-fuelled fundraiser and is inviting the community to join them as part of the Macmillan Cancer Support’s 21st World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Customers will be able to enjoy some tasty treats and a cuppa while they bank at the branch on Rose Hill, from 2pm to 4pm, on Friday, September 30, and Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins is joining the fundraisers.

It will be baking and banking at all 1,634 Barclays branches across the UK on the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning with staff organising events to help raise money for Macmillan financial grants1.

Barclays will match money raised through the branch fundraisers doubling the donations made by employees and customers.

Karen Norris, Chesterfield Branch Manager at Barclays, urged people to come along and join the staff and customers for a cuppa.

Macmillan Cancer Support spokesman Becky Ellison said: “I’d like to thank everyone at Barclays’s in Chesterfield for supporting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, having a cup of coffee and a slice of cake will really make a huge difference.

“All money raised through Barclays will help Macmillan provide financial grants to help people affected by cancer and helping them meet urgent costs which have arisen following diagnosis and treatment.”

Whether it’s a coffee morning at work, an afternoon tea party with the girls or a lively curry night at the rugby club every World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event, no matter how small or large, will help Macmillan make a real difference.
