Coffee morning hits new heights

CoffeeMorningRIDE engineers at Oakwood Theme Park helped raise awareness of a UK-wide charity event by enjoying a coffee break on top of wooden coast ride Megafobia.
The team of engineers took time out from their daily inspection programme to raise a cuppa for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning which takes place later this month.
The theme park is hosting its own coffee morning on Saturday, September 28 to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Relief.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is an annual fundraising event organised by the charity with coffee mornings taking place throughout the UK and even further afield.
Oakwood Park Director, Dominic Jones, said: “As part of our coffee morning event, visitors will be able to sample a selection of homemade cakes donated by staff, with all proceeds from the cake sale going to the charity.
“There will also be collection tins in our cafes and we are making a donation ourselves to what is a tremendous cause.
“Hopefully our engineers’ impromptu coffee break will help raise awareness of the event and encourage even more people to get involved,” he added.
Last year’s coffee morning hosts helped raise a record £15 million for people living with cancer and organisers are hoping 2013 will be even more successful.
