The Macmillan Coffee Mug Hat


After holding a Macmillan Coffee morning last year I really wanted to try and help much more this time as a very close friend had lost her husband to Prostate cancer in January leaving two wonderful little boys. So I asked the Macmillan team if they thought a hat might cause a few raised eyebrows and hopefully a few extra raised coffee mugs.
Viki who works as a fund raising manager in Calderdale for Macmillan came to visit me at the shop and together we hatched a plan. Last Saturday I went along to a Macmillan event where actress Lucy Jo Hudson kindly modelled the hat for us.Hopefully you will see Lucy and the coffee mug hat in quite a few newspapers leading up to the September events. Below you will see the making of the coffee mug hat with it's fresh coffee bean trim.I will be hosting another coffee morning on Friday the 28th Sept here in the workroom at the hat shop, so pop in for coffee if you live close enough, but you can really help by just popping on your kettle and inviting a few friends for coffee. Contact Macmillan and ask them how.
