Sir Roger Gale supports Macmillanís coffee morning - 1st November 2016


North Thanet`s MP Sir Roger Gale showed his support for Macmillan and helped to raise awareness of the issues faced by people affected by cancer on Wednesday by attending a Worldís Biggest Coffee Morning event in Parliament.

More than 220,000 coffee morning events were held around the UK to raise money for Macmillan on and around 30th September and following the success of the national event Macmillan hosted a coffee morning in the House of Commons where MPs had the opportunity to hear about the challenges facing people living with and beyond cancer and to learn more about some of the services that Macmillan provides.

ďMacmillanís coffee morning is a fantastic annual fixture and I was really glad to have the opportunity to attend one in parliament. And it was also a great way to hear more about the support that Macmillan offers directly to people affected by cancer. With the number of people living with cancer increasing, this event is an important opportunity to not only raise funds for a worthy cause, but to bring people together to talk about an issue that will become more urgent in the future.Ē





Having raised £27million in 2015 and over £138million to date, the Worldís Biggest Coffee Morning is the original and most successful charity fundraising event of its sort. The idea remains simple: get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours to hold a coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan, with every donation helping to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
