Our Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday was a success. With the help from local bakeries, we have raised an amazing £128!
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. Macmillan Cancer Support’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK.
The charity was founded in 1911 as the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer, by Douglas Macmillan following the death of his father from the disease. In 1924, the name was changed to the National Society for Cancer Relief, which it retained until 1989 when it was changed to Cancer Relief Macmillan Fund, later changed again to Macmillan Cancer Relief. From 5 April 2006, Macmillan Cancer Relief became known as Macmillan Cancer Support, as this more accurately describes its role in supporting people living with cancer. It has adopted the principles of being a “source of support” and a “force for change”.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Bites Café, Mims, Vintage Tea at No 3, Vanilla Kisses, The Old School Tea Rooms and Anne Parrish. All of your cakes were absolutely delicious!
