A cancer charity is urging Hartlepool people to help it raise record sums – by drinking coffee and eating cake.
Macmillan Cancer Support wants this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to be the biggest ever, hopefully surpassing last year’s £15m total. Macmillan’s fundraising manager for Tees Valley, Lindsay Kay, said: “We want to make sure no one has to face cancer alone but we can’t do it without the amazing people who fundraise for us. Last year we raised a record-breaking amount of money form the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and we really hope we can repeat that again this year.” The official World’s Biggest Coffee Morning day is on September 27 but events can be held any time.
