TTA is proud to support the 2016 Macmillan Coffee Morning

Something special is happening on Friday, 30th September. Do you know what it is? No, it’s not the Ryder Cup, though no doubt some will see that as special. It’s something far worthier than that: it’s the McMillan Coffee Morning. Last year well over 150,000 people took part in the event, promoting cancer awareness and support and raising £25 million for Macmillan Cancer Care.

Transport Training Academy, the North West’s leading Logistics training organisation, is planning to once again give its wholehearted support to this worthy cause by running our own coffee morning to be held at our Atherton HQ from 9.00am this Friday.  

Why is TTA so keen to take part in this year’s event? Well, it’s simply because we feel strongly about the issue, and we want to do whatever we can to help. Cancer currently affects 2.5 million people a year in the UK, and that figure sadly is set to rise to 4 million by the year 2030. We all know someone whose life has been affected by cancer. It’s a disease which will unfortunately touch most of us or our families at some time in our lives.

Although the NHS tries its best to look after and care for the people affected by this dreadful disease, it simply doesn’t have the resources to be able to provide the sort of palliative care that people suffering from cancer need. Most end-of-life care is instead provided by the hospice movement and Macmillan Cancer Support. Sadly, only 20 per cent of the funds needed to support hospice care are provided by the government: the rest is provided by charitable donations from us, the public. Without our help these organisations would not be able to continue to provide the sort of end-of-life care that is so desperately needed. That’s why we want to play our part.

So what are we planning to do to celebrate Macmillan Cancer Support Day? Well on Friday 30th September we’ll be running our own Macmillan Coffee Morning. The event will start at 9.00 am and will be supported by members of TTA’s staff and students from both the Management CPC and Warehousing and Storage courses. We also hope that residents living in the Atherton area will also be able to pop in and join us. What are we planning on offering? Well, there’ll be a selection of homemade and shop-bought cakes, cookies, scones, rock buns, Nutella fudge brownies and apple pie on offer along with lashings of tea and coffee. At the end of the event we hope to auction off any produce left over to local school children on their way home after classes have ended. We’re hopeful that our event will raise a good amount of money for this worthiest of causes.

How can you help? Well, if you live in the local vicinity you can, of course, pop in and join us. If you can’t then you can make a donation. Further details and more information about this wonderful charity can be found at http://www.macmillan.org.uk/Home.aspx. Whatever you do, or however you choose to help, we know your efforts will be greatly appreciated.
