Macmillan Coffee Morning: timetable for Friday 30th September

There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and Macmillan Cancer Support want to be there for them all.
One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Macmillan's goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. They provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, Macmillan are there for friends and family too. Macmillan do amazing things.
Pop in and have a slice of cake, a cup of tea, and help raise money for this worthy cause.
