Online PR News – 02-October-2009 – – Staff at the Worcestershire headquarters of a group of care homes are set to pull in the pounds for charity by enjoying a cuppa.

Alpha Care Homes is due to take part in the world’s biggest coffee morning on September 21 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

A coffee morning will be held at Alpha’s head office in Redditch, as well as at a number of the its 13 care homes throughout the West Midlands, West Sussex and London.

Staff, residents and relatives will make donations and enjoy hot drinks and cakes during the event in order to raise funds for the cancer charity.

Tracey York, Alpha Care Homes’ business development assistant, said head office staff would also be donating a pound to dress up or dress down for the day.

“Alpha always takes part in this worthwhile fundraising event but this year we thought we would add a different twist by allowing staff to wear what they want to work,” she said.

“We are expecting to see staff in different outfits from their normal office attire which will hopefully raise some extra cash for this worthy cause.”
