Better still – they ’ re an easy way for you to support our work ; there ’ s no training , no trekking and no special footwear required ! But you will have to lift a finger ( maybe your pinkie if you ’ ve decided to have a cup of tea !).
Coffee Morning top tips

4 . Think about some add-ons : hold a raffle , have extra cakes for purchase or sell some bric-a-brac
