An 18 year old staffer at Dorcan based business Media Plant is organising the company’s first ever coffee morning fundraiser for Macmillan on 30 September.
Lauren Webb, 18, has previously held successful events for the charity’s renowned ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ when at Commonweal School, raising more than £350.
Media Plant is one of Britain’s CD and DVD replication and duplication companies with clients such as Eddie Stobart and Aviva will open its doors to the public from 10am to 12pm to serve tea, coffee and cakes in aid of the charity.
Lauren said: “We at Media Plant are hosting the coffee morning in memory of a number of friends and family members of our staff.
“I always like to do my bit for such cancer charities as Macmillan Cancer Support and the Prospect Hospice. The support work they do with cancer patients and their families is invaluable.
“My uncle Derek passed away after a battle with cancer five years ago. It was his death that spurred me on to doing whatever I can for others in the same situation.”
The public will have the chance to tour Media Plant, a chance to have an exclusive insight into how the firm works.
Media Plant are based at Lancaster House, Hindle Way, SN3 3RT, near Morrison’s on Dorcan Way.
