Cambridge fundraisers are full of beans and the sweet smell of success is in the air in what was a bumper year for Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ which took place on Friday 27 September.
Daniel Zeichner MP dropped into events across the city, enjoying a cuppa and tucking into a slice of cake at Cambridge 105 and Cambridge Central Mosque while raising much-needed cash to support the growing number of people living with cancer.
Macmillan is almost entirely funded by donations. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost 4 million by 2030.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “Crumbs, it’s that time of the year again! Macmillan’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is the one day of the year politicians can have their cake and eat it. I’m enjoying some sweet treats and the excellent company is the icing on the cake.
“Sadly, cancer can affect anyone, and it impacts on every part of your life. Macmillan provides financial, physical and emotional support for people living with cancer, so that’s why we want to raise money so that everybody gets the help they need.”
