Hey Filmorites! We are super excited to be taking part in the Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning next Friday, September 30. We want to help this fabulous charity raise vital funds for people facing cancer - and we need you to eat cake! 
Our fabulous restaurants in York Petergate, Harrogate, Wetherby, Beverley, Ilkley and Skipton will be offering our delicious Filmore chocolate brownies, as well as our awesome banana and pecan loaf in exchange for a donation to the charity.

All the money raised from the sale of the cakes at the event, which will take place from 9am-12pm, will go to Macmillan.
Adele Ashley, owner of Filmore & Union, said: “Macmillan Coffee Mornings raise millions of pounds to support people with families living with cancer and we were keen to get involved and help to make a difference in our local communities.”
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Last year the charity raised £25 million and this year it is aiming to raise even more – so let’s help Macmillan beat their target Filmorites! 
Made using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, our gluten free banana and pecan loaf is the perfect choice for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. We currently donate a loaf to the amazing Yorkshire branch of the Breast Cancer Haven charity each month.

A spokesman for Breast Cancer Haven said: “Nutritional advice plays an important role in the support programme offered at Breast Cancer Haven to anyone effected by breast cancer, so to work with Filmore & Union whose products encourage healthy eating made perfect sense. Breast Cancer Haven is delighted to receive such generous support from our friends at Filmore & Union.”
We hope to see you next Friday for some charity cake-eatin’ Filmorites!
