The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan UK's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. In 2015, the charity raised a record £27.6 million (€31.8 million). While Macmillan doesn't have a registered presence in Malta, its' support network is often the first point of recommendation by doctors in Malta to cancer patients and their families.
"Giving back to society is a hallmark of HSBC and it's always inspiring to see the enthusiasm of our employees who join in and donate generously over a coffee and cake," said Robert Vaughan, director, HSBC UKCC.
The HSBC UKCC regularly organises various fundraising and awareness activities to support the society it operates in, while staff frequently volunteer in the community. Earlier this year, the Contact Centre raised and donated €1,500 to the Malta Dementia Society. The HSBC UKCC funds enabled the NGO to present Malta's first ever dementia-themed play in Maltese language. The play, Il-Masgar tal-Allat Siekta (The orchard of the silent gods), was presented on 2nd October as part of the Science in the City 2016 festival.
