MacMillan coffee morning held at Rainham allotments.


On Sunday 26th of September a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was held at Rainham allotments to raise money for MacMillan. The popular event was organised by the area’s two amazing community champions Sue Ospreay and Jackie McArdle who stop at nothing to help raise money for charity and bring the community together.

Lots of stalls were present to make this another successful event in Rainham. Our two favourite crocheting queens Debbie and Kerry had a stall with all their amazing crafts for sale, alongside Annie from the drama group who made some stunning cakes!
