The Magpie Trust, set up by Altair Partners Limited held a coffee morning at the offices of Forum 3 on the 25th September in support of Macmillan.

Altair invited staff from neighbouring offices including Vantage Innovation, Digital Jersey, Bank of Singapore and J P Morgan to enjoy homemade delicious cakes baked by staff members, raising £500 for such a worthy cause.

By way of a background, Macmillan launched its coffee morning in 1990 with the simple idea that guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their drink to Macmillan.  Since then, the Coffee Morning has grown into Macmillan's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer and has raised over £138 million to date.

All money raised will help Macmillan as follows:-

  • £159,063 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for three years, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

  • £53,021 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a year, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

  • £4,418 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a month, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

  • £1,020 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a week, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

  • £204 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a day, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.

  • £27 could pay for a Macmillan nurse for a year, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support.
