Support our coffee morning

I AM writing to ask your readers to raise a mug for Macmillan Cancer Support’s 30th annual Coffee Morning so we can provide vital support to people with cancer, who need it now more than ever.

This year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning will be on Friday 25 September, but we are encouraging people to get involved whenever and wherever they can by hosting a virtual or socially distanced event. Nothing stops a Macmillan Coffee Morning!

Before Covid-19, many patients told Macmillan being diagnosed with cancer and going through treatment was the scariest thing that they could imagine.

These anxieties and concerns have not gone away during the pandemic – they’ve been made worse, meaning Macmillan needs support from people in Bucks more than ever to provide the vital support people living with cancer rely on.

Every penny raised by Coffee Morning helps Macmillan to provide this support, and last year, Bucks alone raised £223,000 in Coffee Mornings but as it stands, registrations are down 68 per cent.

So I want to assure readers that they can still sign up now by visiting or by searching for Macmillan Coffee Morning.
