Following a fantastic year of fundraising, The Wolverton & Stony Rotary Club have raised an incredible £14,000 for MacIntyre.
Jim Barnes from Wolverton & Stony Rotary Club said:
“We are delighted to have exceeded our fundraising target and have presented MacIntyre with a cheque for £14,000, which will enable the renovation of the coffee shop in Stony Stratford to go ahead this February. Thanks to MacIntyre's own efforts the project has developed over the year and will now will include a complete makeover and redecoration of the whole shop. None of this could have happened without the generous support of our club members as well as all those who made donations through the year.”
In order to raise the incredible total, the club held several events including; a Loop the Loop challenge, a Curry Night, Christmas Float and collection at Sainsbury’s in Milton Keynes, A Race Night and much more.
Claire Kennedy, Head of Fundraising at MacIntyre added:
“We have loved working alongside the Club to raise these funds; it has been a real partnership and we recognise just how lucky we were to be chosen and to have been able to draw on the particular skills of club members, with a special mention for Jim Barnes who has been the driving force.
MacIntyre’s Coffee Shops at Stony Stratford and Great Holm offer work and learning opportunities for adults with learning disabilities as well as fabulous fresh food at competitive prices. The Stony Stratford Coffee Shop has been long overdue a refit and we are delighted that this work can now take place.”
The Stony Stratford Coffee Shop is planned to close from Monday 11 February; the refurbishment is expected to take two to three weeks.
