Staff at Greggs Northwest in Openshaw raised £300 for the Macmillan Drop-in Centre at Tameside Hospital.
They raised the money in just one week selling football cards, lunchtime sing-a-longs, bucket collections and selling bread. They also donated cakes which the Macmillan team sold to make a further £20.
Patricia Vickers, a member of Greggs Northwest’s charity committee said: “Everybody just wanted to give because we know it’s going to go to people in the local area.”
Susan Robinson, Macmillan Cancer Nursing Service Coordinator, said: “We are always so grateful for donations like this to help keep the drop-in going, and on behalf of all the patients who will benefit I would like to thank everyone at Greggs Northwest for their support.”
The money will be used to support the Macmillan drop-in sessions held on the first and third Tuesday each month, from 10am to 12pm. where patients can get advice and information on their condition, what support is available to them, access complementary therapies, group relaxation sessions and buy and learn how to style headscarves if they have lost their hair during treatment.
