Drink coffee for Macmillan
A LEADING cancer charity is making one final push to urge people to take part in its biggest fundraising event yet.
So far, 120 people in Northwich have signed up to take part in Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World Biggest Coffee Morning’, taking place this Friday, September 28.
It is hoped the event will raise more than £17,000 for the charity.
Although delighted with the response it has received, Macmillan is hoping that even more people will sign up to take part.
Macmillan’s Cheshire fundraising manager, Sarah Page, said: “We are really grateful to everyone who has signed up to hold a coffee morning for Macmillan so far.
“Their support is very much appreciated and we hope they have a fantastic time at their event.
“However, we want people to know there is still time to sign up to hold a coffee morning and help us raise more money than ever before.”
The official event day may be September 28, but Macmillan is happy for people to hold their coffee morning on a day that suits them.
“If you can’t do it on Friday then just pick another day,” said Sarah.
“If you’re not keen on coffee and would rather have cocktails or even herbal tea then that’s fine as well,
“All that matters is that you take part and help Macmillan make this year’s coffee morning the biggest ever.”
All money raised during the event will be used to help fund the charity’s vital services, from specialist nurses and doctors, to grants and advice for people who have money problems because of their illness.

Those who can’t hold their own coffee morning are being urged to get along to one of the public coffee mornings being held in Northwich.
