TES Personal virtual Macmillan coffee morning

    It has become apparent from reading @grumpydogwoman ’s cancer thread what an excellent job Macmillan do in providing support and advice to those who need it. I thought that it might be a good idea to hold a virtual coffee morning at a specific date and time. It would be a bit like a TES meet, but we would be in our own homes. We could post pictures of our cakes (real or imaginary) and I might even post a picture of the prize for the best cake. We can drink coffee while posting and afterwards each make our donation straight to the Macmillan site. We could choose the ‘group or association ‘ option and give the organisation name as TES Personal. We have had virtual cafes and virtual bars, so why not a virtual coffee morning and raise some money for a very worthwhile cause?
    If anyone has any suggestions as to date and time, I would be very grateful. I thought that perhaps the 31st October might be a good day, if nothing else is happening then ...

    I'm in. Not sure I can actually "be there"with the time difference and everything but will certainly read comments and donate.

    What a fantastic idea, knit one. I’ll join in if I can and will definitely make a donation. We none of us know when we , or our loved ones, might need support due to cancer.

    What a brilliant idea. So I’m bumping this up so that , hopefully, more will see it.
    It would be good if it could be a ‘sticky’ at the top of page 1 @TES_Rosaline

    Wonder if we can alert posters from other forums.

    Can I drink tea ? Wondering on my choice of cake. I love carrot cake, but I really love an M + S lemon muffin. Think I’ll decide on the day, depends what I’m feeling, also partial to a cream scone. Decisions decisions.

    I'm at school then but will look in later for a glass of wine, rather than coffee by then, with cake and will yeet some money towards Macmillan.
    Great idea!
