PENDLE MP Andrew Stephenson is encouraging people to host their own coffee morning to raise vital funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is due to take place on Friday September 27, and is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event.

Last year shops and businesses across the country hosted coffee mornings as the public helped raise more than £26 million nationally for the cancer charity, and Mr Stephenson is hoping even more people will get involved this year.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to the world’s biggest coffee morning. It’s a great way to get everyone together and raise money for people living with cancer. You can order a fundraising pack, which includes some great resources. Macmillan provides bunting, balloons, cake decorations and a lot more. Macmillan raised a massive amount last year.”
