Get in­volved

The Arran Banner - - Letters -

Sir, Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port’s World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing event is fast ap­proach­ing and we would love for read­ers in North Ayr­shire to get in­volved. Hav­ing be­come a na­tional in­sti­tu­tion since it launched in 1990, it has raised mil­lions to help change the lives of peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer, in­clud­ing here in North Ayr­shire.

Last year some 200,000 peo­ple said that they were plan­ning on tak­ing part in homes, work­places and schools across the coun­try but the idea re­mains as sim­ple as ever: come to­gether as a com­mu­nity in sup­port of peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer and raise money for Macmil­lan.

Can­cer can af­fect ev­ery as­pect of a per­son’s life, from their day-to-day liv­ing and re­la­tion­ships to their fi­nances and men­tal health. Macmil­lan is there to help peo­ple with can­cer live life as fully as they can.

Of­fer­ing a broad range of can­cer in­for­ma­tion and sup­port ser­vices – in­clud­ing a free sup­port line and a com­mu­nity of more than 7,700 health­care pro­fes­sion­als – de­mand for Macmil­lan’s ser­vices is con­stantly grow­ing, but we rely on the gen­eros­ity of the pub­lic to pro­vide this sup­port.

Macmil­lan’s cof­fee morn­ing takes place on Fri­day Septem­ber 28 (but peo­ple can host when­ever they want) and peo­ple will be mak­ing a dif­fer­ence how­ever they get in­volved. Who­ever they invite and what­ever they serve, peo­ple are highly en­cour­aged to host a Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ing in a way that suits them. Homes, work­places and com­mu­ni­ties from the Shet­land Is­lands to Land’s End will be host­ing cof­fee morn­ings this year; read­ers in North Ayr­shire can find events nearby us­ing the in­ter­ac­tive map on the cof­fee morn­ing web­site www. macmil­lan.org.uk/cof­fee

Thank you to ev­ery­one who gets in­volved: ev­ery cof­fee morn­ing changes lives.

Yours, Joanna Lum­ley Macmil­lan Can­cer Sup­port
