Local MSP John Lamont is calling on people in the Borders to help raise money for a cancer charity - by drinking coffee and eating cake.
Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is celebrating its 25th birthday this month. The charity is hoping this year’s event will be the biggest ever with coffee mornings taking place across Scotland on and around September 25.
Mr Lamont said: “Macmillan want to make sure no one has to face cancer alone but they can’t do it without the amazing people who take part in coffee morning every September.”
“Last year Macmillan raised a record-breaking amount of money from the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and I really hope they can repeat that again this year.”
“It’s a fun and easy way to raise money to help Macmillan be there for people with cancer and their families when they are needed most.”
The official World’s Biggest Coffee Morning day is on September 25 but events can be held any time.
