Macmillan Coffee Morning and Photographic Exhibition Saturday September 29th

Following the huge success of last year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning (with your support we raised £1400) on Saturday September 29th Leadgate Salvation Army will once again be hosting a Macmillan coffee morning. This is a coffee morning with a difference.

As well as the usual coffee morning and cake stall, the army hall in Green Street, Leadgate will be home to a huge photographic exhibition showing the local area through the ages.

Also making an appearance between 1pm and 2pm will be the Olympic torch bearer Nigel Cook, together with his Olympic torch.

There will be over one thousand 6’ x 4’ prints to buy at a cost of only 50p each. Many of these include photographs of Consett Iron Company both in its heyday and also during demolition.  Photograph frames and albums are also available to buy with all money going to the Macmillan Appeal.

If you have a photograph of your own that you would like enlarged or copied then bring it along and whilst you are having your cup of coffee it can be scanned and printed for you before you leave.

The organiser of the display, Tommy Young, says “The support that families get from Macmillan is incredible. It is a marvellous organisation that is there for you during very difficult times. We want to do something that goes some way to saying thank you to them”

Why not pop along between 10am and 3pm to Leadgate Salvation Army in Green Street Leadgate (DH8 7PT) on Saturday September 29th and support Macmillan.  You can enjoy both a cuppa and a nostalgic look back down memory lane.
