Macmillan Cancer Support marked the 30th anniversary of their coffee morning. The money raised at this event every year helps fund services like the 6,400 Macmillan Nurses and their free support line that gives cancer sufferers the physical, emotional and financial support they need. This year’s event was more important than ever.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the event is facing a £20 million shortfall in fundraising. This is equivalent to the cost of more than 350 Macmillan specialist cancer nurses in England for a full year.
