It’s that time of year again, when fundraisers across the country gear up for Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 25 September.
Iain Gray MSP is helping promote the leading fundraising event this month and is urging local people to consider signing up and getting involved this year.
This year Macmillan is encouraging people to hold their own event – small or big, tea or coffee, socially distanced or virtual – Coffee Morning can be what you make it, as long as it raises funds to support the charity’s vital work.
Iain Gray MSP said:
“Thousands of people in East Lothian have experience of cancer, either personally or in their families, and for many of them Macmillan has been there to offer vital advice and support. The charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is one the best supported fundraising events in the country, raising a remarkable £27 million last year.
“But, in the current circumstances with charitable donations falling in the wake of the pandemic, fundraising events like this are more important than ever, which is why I’m helping to promote Macmillan coffee mornings in East Lothian again this year.
“While there are always a number of events organised by local groups and organisations, I would also encourage people to consider holding their own coffee morning. It’s a fun and easy way to raise money for Macmillan, and they will provide everything you need to host your own even.”
