The organisers of the 3rd annual Northumberland’s Biggest Coffee Morning announced on July 24 that $49,477 was raised this year.
With almost 100 coffee parties held across west Northumberland, guests and their hosts enjoyed laughter and fellowship, while making donations toward the purchase of new medical equipment for the Northumberland Hills Hospital.
Event spokesperson and Colborne resident, Ferne Dobson, is thrilled with the final results for Northumberland’s Biggest Coffee Morning. “This result would not have been possible without an army of supporters, volunteers, sponsors and of course – the very generous attendees,” said Mrs. Dobson in the press release.
“The event was held in honour of Nick Hathway and Bob MacCoubrey and the success of this year’s event is a great tribute to their dedication and support of the hospital.”
In the past three years Northumberland’s Biggest Coffee Morning has raised $180,000 for the hospital.
