Girlguiding members, including Trefoil members, across the Island have raised over £800 by organising and running Coffee Mornings/Evenings in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

These well-established events which support Macmillan are run across the country and a number of charities and other organisations on the Island take part every year. Monies raised support Macmillan to carry out their work in many ways.

1st Carisbrooke (Princess Beatrice Own) Guides raised over £250 for Macmillan with the Guides and their families’ baking cakes and other refreshments to accompany the coffee. In addition, the Guides organised and ran games and competitions to entertain the guests. Linda Stone the leader of Carisbrooke Guides said after the coffee morning, “Well done and thank you to everyone who helped us raise £250.74 for Macmillan Cancer Support from our cake and refreshment sales. In addition, we raised £64.18 for Guide funds from the games and competitions. “

At Newport, 11th Newport Guides, at their evening event, also entertained guests and there was a great selection of food to accompany the drinks. They raised £212.63.

Meanwhile, in the Bay Area, Shanklin and Sandown Trefoil Guild raised a fabulous £400 for Macmillan.

All groups would like to thank those who attended the events.
