Stratfordians urged to back Macmillan coffee morning

Stratford Editorial 21st Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

THE WORLD’S biggest coffee morning is set to take place next week.

And people are being encouraged to boil the kettle and serve up some cake to help raise money for cancer support charity Macmillan on September 30.

Last year, 950 coffee mornings were held in Warwickshire raising some £238,300 to help provide vital services and support for people affected by cancer, including the Macmillan cancer information and support centre in Warwick Hospital’s Aylesford Unit.

Fundraising manager for Warwickshire, Sarah Diston, said: “We want to make sure no one has to face cancer alone but we can’t do it without the amazing people who fundraise for us.

“If you can’t do it on September 30 then just pick another day. All that matters is that you get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours over coffee and cake to raise some money to help Macmillan be there for people affected by cancer in Warwickshire.”

Marks and Spencer and Nationwide are both are partners of this year’s event and people are invited to enjoy a slice of cake made by staff in store or branch on September 30.
