Raise a mug and take a selfie for Macmillan

People in Neath are being encouraged to take a ‘selfie’ photograph holding a cuppa, as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s #raiseamug campaign to raise awareness of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 30 September 2016.

Now in its 26th year, Macmillan’s flagship fundraising event is on track to equal the incredible £26.7m that was raised for Macmillan last year.

Susan Morris, Head of Services for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales, said “With the number of people living with cancer in Wales expected to reach 240,000 by 2030, Macmillan Cancer Support wants to ensure that, in future, no-one faces cancer alone.

In Wales, more than 19,000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year, with more than 130,000 people here currently living with a cancer diagnosis.

Jeremy Miles, AM for Neath, attended a coffee morning at the Senedd, where Assembly Members came together for a cuppa and a slice of cake and to hear more about Macmillan’s work supporting people affected by cancer in Wales.

Jeremy said “Cancer touches the lives of so many of us. Macmillan Cancer Support provides essential help to people from the moment they are diagnosed but they rely on donations from the public to help fund their work.”

Money raised by the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will help fund Macmillan’s work in Wales, including funding or nurses, physiotherapists, information centres, as well as campaigning for better cancer care for patients.
