Calderdale Royal’s Macmillan Unit will be putting on the kettle once again for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

For the sixth year running, staff, volunteers and patients will take part in the event by enjoying cake, tea and coffee, whilst testing their luck out on the tombola and raffle, with a whole range of great prizes to be won. The event, which will take place between 10am -12pm on Friday September 26 at the Macmillan Unit, is inviting all members of the public to attend.

The money raised from the Macmillan Unit coffee morning will help support all people affected with cancer by continuing to fund Macmillan’s vital services such as nurses, and welfare benefits advisors.

The money raised for Macmillan will make a huge difference for the lives of those people affected by cancer and ensures that no one has to face cancer alone.

Viki Nixon, fundraising manager for Macmillan cancer support in Calderdale, said: “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s flagship event and if you’re not holding your own this year, then where better to show your support than our specialist unit at Calderdale Royal Hospital. We are so grateful to all the staff that bring the event together year on year, and hope we will see lots of the general public supporting this event. Macmillan provides practical, medical, emotional and financial support for people at every stage of their cancer journey and we rely on our fundraisers for 98% of our income every year. That’s why the support in our local community in Calderdale is so important. Every penny raised will help us to be there for people when they need us most.”

Ruth Henderson Macmillan cancer information and support manager, said: “The staff at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS foundation Trust are always happy to support Macmillan Cancer Support and the Coffee Morning is the perfect opportunity to raise money and also highlight local services which provide treatment, information and support to anyone affected by cancer. Over the last five years the coffee morning has gone from strength to strength, and it is great to see the enthusiasm from both staff and the general public each year which helps to make this event such a success.”
