As you've probably heard, the cancer charity, Macmillan Cancer Support is holding the World's Biggest Coffee Morning using coffee machines on 30 September to raise funds. The charity works to help those who have the disease and also to offer support to those who are close to cancer victims.
As this is a subject that touches many people in the UK, there has been a huge response to the call to raise money. Across the length and breadth of the country, people are organising events large and small, extravagant and quiet, to support the cause and fund-raise for Macmillan.
For example, here are some of the things that are going on:
In Scotland, on 29 September, the local MP of Edinburgh South (Ian Murray) opened his office to his constituents. They were invited to step inside for a cuppa and also to learn about the work done by Macmillan.
In southern England, in West Sussex, a local garden centre is similarly supporting the charity by holding a coffee morning using coffee machines. The Old Barn Nursery & Garden Centre is opening its doors on 30 September during the morning and will be providing complimentary tea and coffee.
In the north of England, things are getting busy too. In Scarborough, for example, a series of events have been organised. On 29 September, the Grand Hotel in St Nicholas Cliff held a gathering and on 30 September, the official day of the World's Biggest Coffee Morning – Samwedges, St Dean's Garden Centre, Plaxton Court and Bon Marche are just a few of the venues in the country to get involved.
