Due to a funeral at our church on the official 'World's largest coffee morning', we had to postpone it to this Friday, 2nd October instead. So you have another opportunity to help those wonderful people at Macmillan. There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and they 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. The charity'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, they are there for friends and family too. They are Macmillan. We are supporters. You are invited. 10am — 12noon, in our Buckingham Street coffee bar. We hope you can make it.
