Chocolate Collective Support the ‘Macmillan Big Night In’ in Manchester

Earlier this year I was delighted to be approached to support the Macmillan Big Night In Campaign.  This is a special event held throughout the country by people who wanted to raise money on behalf of the important charity Macmillan Nurses.

Deluxe Chocolate Workshop experience for two in Manchester's City Centre

Having had experience in my own family of the Macmillan Nurses there was no question in donating a prize for such a worthwhile charity and event.  My donation to the Big Night In was a Deluxe Chocolate Workshop experience for two people on one of our Manchester based courses making delicious Belgian chocolate truffles.

Here's Melanie’s story and why she approached Chocolate Collective:

Chocolate CollectiveMy name is Melanie and I have now hosted a Macmillan Coffee Morning and a Big Night In. I first arranged the Coffee Morning after my friend’s father had passed away from Cancer and her and her family were greatly supported by the fantastic Macmillan Nurses. After the success of our Coffee Morning I then organised a Big Night In.  This is such a worthwhile cause and all money raised helps to maintain the amazing care given by Macmillan. At both of my events I have held raffles with donations being given from many companies including Hasbro, Asda, Tesco, Jilly Beads, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, House of Fraser, Cath Kidston, Lush, Heart FM, Jelly Cat, The Fudge Kitchen and of course Chocolate Collective to name but a few. So far we have raised more than £700 through our two events and are hoping to host another Coffee Morning in September”.
