Support for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning Across East Midlands Trains


  • Opportunity to make a donation on trains and at stations on Friday 26th September to support Macmillan Cancer Support ·        
  • East Midlands Trains hoping staff and passengers can help to beat last year’s total of £5,728.11 

East Midlands Trains is delighted to announce it will once again be supporting the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning this Friday (26th September) in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Passengers will have the opportunity to make a donation on board trains and in booking offices or enjoy a slice of a cake in a number of First Class lounges. In addition, station volunteers at Kidsgrove will be selling cakes kindly donated by Kidsgrove Tesco in the station booking hall between 10am and noon. 

East Midlands Trains employees are also getting involved with head office and maintenance depot staff holding their own cake sales to raise additional funds for the charity. 

Neil Micklethwaite, Customer Service and Commercial Director at East Midlands Trains, said: “We’re looking forward to again supporting Macmillan Cancer Support by getting involved with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Our passengers will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy a slice of cake, or simply make a donation if they wish. 

“Many of our staff and passengers will have been affected by cancer in some way and I am sure the charity will be well supported again this year and hopefully we can beat the £5,700 we raised last year!” 

East Midlands Trains will be supported by its catering partner Rail Gourmet.  As well as getting its trolley staff involved in helping to raise money, Rail Gourmet will also be making a donation from its tea, coffee and cake sales.
