Midlothian MSP helps charity prepare for coffee morning

Coffee morning to take place in memory of Colwyn Bay town councillor

There will be a host of prizes on offer in a raffle and tombola, with the proceeds going to MacMillan Cancer Support.

"This effort helps to fund invaluable Macmillan roles in each community, such as nurses, occupational therapists and dieticians that make a real difference to those affected by cancer".

COFFEE is brewing and cake stands are mounted as a popular charity event is set to return this week.

Ahead of the event Claire Jarvis, sales director for Redrow Homes (Lancashire), says: "The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan's biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer". It just goes to show that every slice of cake and cup of coffee can add up to make a real difference. Last year alone the charity raised £29.5m and this year is aiming to raise even more.

It couldn't be more simple to get involved - all you need to do is get together with family, friends or colleagues over coffee and cake.

This year there will be events in places such as Temple Newsam, Leeds Beckett University, the Sir Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre at St James' Hospital - and many, many more. Macmillan will receive 100% of every £1 donated in this way. "We hope that this year's event will be our most successful yet!"

The charity asks people all over the United Kingdom to host their own coffee mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.

If you are having a coffee morning let us know.

A big coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support will take place in Gwersyllt this week.
