Caffeine boost for us and vital nurses


I CAN’T wait to take part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event this year and I’d love to encourage your readers to do the same and join me in raising a mug to mark the record-breaking annual fund-raiser.

It’s an unfortunat­e and undeniable truth that most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, and one in two of us will be diagnosed with the disease.

Sadly, there has never been a more terrifying time in recent history to receive a diagnosis as people face potential disruption or delays to treatment, and people in Leicester impacted by cancer need Macmillan’s support now more than ever before.

With this in mind, it’s great that by simply hosting or attending a coffee morning, you can play an invaluable role in helping Macmillan be there for those most in need.

The smallest gesture really can make the biggest difference, and every year Macmillan supporters up and down the country help raise millions of pounds just by taking part.

Coffee Morning encourages people to gather with friends, family or colleagues, physically or virtually, to raise money for people living with cancer.

Every penny raised plays a vital role in enabling Macmillan – which is funded almost entirely by donations – to continue to provide emotional, financial and clinical support.

This year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning will be on Friday, September 24, but please do just get involved whenever and wherever you can.

However you plan it and whatever refreshmen­ts you serve, you can host your coffee morning your way.
