Sewing machine shop Hobkirks is hosting a week-long coffee morning for Macmillan
A tailor shop will get its kettle boiling by hosting a Macmillian Coffee Week.
Hobkirks Sewing Machines on Darwen Street, Blackburn are welcoming customers with a beer and cake this week to raise money for the charity.
Delicious coffees and cakes will be offered throughout the day, in exchange for donations to Macmillan Cancer Support.
The caring staff of Hobkirks, members of Blackburn BID, also donate 10% of the shop’s proceeds during the week to Macmillan.
Hobkirks manager Marcus Gannon said: “Macmillan is a charity close to our hearts and we wanted to show our support. We’re a company that cares – and taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning at Macmillan should be a fun way to raise funds.
“Hosting the week-long coffee morning is the first for the store and there will be a mix of staff baked goods and store-bought treats available. We look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to the store for an informal cup of tea for a good cause. »
Macmillan Cancer Support provides emotional, physical and financial support to people with cancer from the moment they are diagnosed.
Hobkirks has been a family business based in Blackburn town center for 100 years. They supply household and industrial sewing machines, embroidery machines, sewing accessories and parts, fabrics and garment forms.
The store began fundraising on Monday (September 20) and will continue until Friday (September 25).
