ScotRail Alliance proud to support Macmillan

Posted: 28th September 2017

The ScotRail Alliance is proud to once again support the Macmillan ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Taking place on Friday 29 September, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s largest fundraising event for people facing cancer.

Passengers who wish to purchase hot drinks on a ScotRail train or at the Cafeology coffee cart in Glasgow Queen Street station will be asked to donate to Macmillan, rather than pay for their drink.

A choice of shortbread or a flapjack will also be provided to accompany the drink, which will be donated by ScotRail’s main supplier Food and Drink Hub in Cumbernauld.

The coffee morning will run from 7am until 10am with all proceeds donated to Macmillan Cancer Support.

ScotRail Alliance Head of Customer Experience & Hospitality Garry Clark said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the Macmillan ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ once again.

“Through the kindness and generosity of our people and our passengers, we have raised more than £10,000 over the past few years and hope to raise even more funds for this worthy cause.”

Macmillan Fundraising Manager Emma Connor said: “We are extremely grateful for the support of ScotRail Alliance and their customers who have raised an amazing amount of money for us over the past few years.

“Every penny raised will help Macmillan continue to provide emotional, financial, medical and practical support to people affected by cancer.”
