Macmillan*, the UK’s leading cancer supporter charity, is almost entirely funded by donations and simply cannot support the growing number of people with cancer who need them without the public’s help. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost 4 million by 2030. Macmillan are the only charity supporting anyone, no matter their age, where they live and or their cancer diagnosis. They help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support.

We are hosting our annual coffee morning to support this worthwhile cause. Cancer can affect anyone, and it impacts on every part of life. Macmillan provides financial, physical and emotional support for people living with cancer, so that’s why we want to raise money so that everybody gets the help they need.
