World's Biggest Coffee Morning
A Coffee Morning was held at Old Heathcoat School Community Centre on Friday 27 September 2013 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Thanks to everyone who came along on the day.
The Old Heathcoat Community Centre has been selected to benefit from a share of a £25,000 cash fund.
We have been nominated to share in a "Cash For The Community" fund donated by Western Power Distribution in partnership with the Express & Echo, Mid Devon Gazette and Herald Express newspapers.
The more votes we collect, the bigger our share of the £25,000 prize fund!
We would like to thank everyone who helped collect coupons to boost our share of this £25,000 cash fund.
The money we receive will go towards building a storage area for climbing equipment to enhance our recently opened climbing wall.
Thank you for your support!
