CHARITY supporters are being urged to join the nation’s biggest brew - starting today.
Coffee-and-cake events for Macmillan Cancer Support’s World Biggest Coffee Morning will be held across the country next Friday, September 28.
And Kiveton Park Surgery on Chapel Way, Kiveton Park, is starting early with a coffee morning from 10am to noon tomorrow (Friday).
Last year, 200,000 people signed up to take part in homes, workplaces and schools across the country.
And Macmillan said the idea remained as simple as ever - come together as a community in support of people living with cancer and raise money for Macmillan.
Christina Eccles, Macmillan’s spokeswoman for Yorkshire, said; “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 over 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.
“Our Biggest Coffee Morning takes place on Friday, September 28, but people can host whenever they want and you will be making a difference however you get involved.”
M&S will be selling a selection of limited edition products to support the Coffee Morning - including lots of cakes, biscuits and two exclusive mugs - with ten per cent of proceeds going to Macmillan.
