2nd October 2015 - Press Release

Port community at the heart for the world's biggest coffee morning



PSL Freight has led the port's backing for MacMillan Cancer Support's 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning'.

The company organised a coffee and cake morning at Lord Warden House and also laid on a fundraising food trolley that visited port offices.

The event last Friday was open to members of the port community including agents, Border Force and Port of Dover staff.

There was a variety of cakes on offer including lemon drizzle, chocolate, carrot and a toffee sponge. Decorations, cakes, bottles for raffle and ingredients (coffee, tea etc.) were supplied by PSL Dover’s team of staff, friends and family while the Port of Dover donated tables and chairs. The morning raised over £400 towards McMillian Cancer.

Richard Catt, director at PSL Freight, said: “This was another great result and show of support, especially when there were so many other similar events happening in the area at the same time. I hope each and everyone of them had similar success, and that MacMillan Cancer Support gets the financial support it so richly deserves.

‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is Macmillan Cancer Support’s annual flagship fundraiser and is celebrated its 25th Anniversary this year. In 2014 it raised a record breaking £25 million and this year, with a little help from the community at the World’s Best Port, Macmillan is hoping to raise even more!

Tim Waggott, the Port of Dover’s chief executive, said: “PSL Freight did a brilliant job in putting this all together. I hope the port community does all it can to help them raise as much money as possible for this very worthy charity.”
