World’s Biggest Coffee Morning hits the spot in Brimington

World’s Biggest Coffee Morning hits the spot in Brimington

On Friday September 24th, Brimington Bowls Club was the venue for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, an event raising money for Macmillan Support. Labour Member of Parliament, Toby Perkins, joined dozens of local residents, the Mayor of Chesterfield and crown green bowlers who all donated money while enjoying cups of tea, hot and cold food, and a raffle. The event finale saw the climax of the daylong bowls tournament on the perfectly prepared Bowling Green.

The event has been going for over two decades in Brimington. Pamela Wright, secretary of Brimington Bowls Club, raised a total of £17 in its inaugural year. Last year, over £1500 was raised and donated to Macmillan Support to help those affected by cancer in the local area. Mr. Perkins was given a tour of the Bowls Club facilities at which he is attending the annual presentation evening next month, including the clubhouse with its collection of memorabilia. He was then shown to the community room in which the teas and coffees were being served by the dozen and visited stalls selling everything from paintings to fresh fruit and vegetables.

Mr. Perkins said:-

I would like to congratulate Pamela and the team for organizing such a fantastic event. The bowling competition, the cups of tea and good food raise huge sums of money for such a worthwhile cause. The event attracted people of all ages who came to have a good time and support Macmillan, despite the cold weather. Unfortunately my bowls is not up to the standard of those taking part but I hope to find time to practice in time for next year’s event!”
