Around 24,000 passengers travelling on-board our 55 flights operating today had the opportunity to take part in Monarch’s World’s Highest Coffee Morning at 38,000ft.
This special event was in aid of Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’, raising money for this very special charity. Monarch passengers were able to purchase a cup of half price Kenco coffee on-board, with all the proceeds being donated by Monarch to Macmillan. A cuppa can really go a long way – every 20 cups of coffee sold, will fund a Macmillan Nurse for an hour.
Our managing director Kevin George said Monarch cabin crew and customers continue to show their generosity to important charities such as Macmillan, raising hundreds of thousands of pounds over recent years. “We are pleased to be able to take Macmillan’s flagship event to a new height by offering Monarch passengers the opportunity to participate whilst on-board with us,” he said.
Sharon Cottam, from Macmillan Cancer Support comments: ‘I’d like to thank everyone at Monarch for making time to show their support and join the World’s Biggest Coffee
Morning. A coffee morning in the sky is a really unusual and fun way of supporting Macmillan. We hope everybody on board enjoyed taking part and helping the Macmillan team.’
This year, thousands of people across the UK are taking time out to pour a brew and make a difference. Whether it’s a coffee morning at work, a bake off between friends or a cuppa in the sky – every donation adds up and will help Macmillan’s ambition to provide support to everyone affected by cancer.
