A coffee morning is being held in Melton next Friday (June 10) in memory of Meltonian June Roper MBE who raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support up until her death in 2014.

For many years June was a major fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support, selling her home-made jams and chutneys and holding an annual coffee morning at her home on Ankle Hill.

Some of June’s friends and members of the local Macmillan fundraising group have decided to keep her memory and her passion for Macmillan alive by hosting this coffee morning at one of June’s favourite venues – Hamilton Tennis Club on Sandy Lane.

So, if you remember June and used to support her, or if you would just like to show your support for Macmillan, then please come along on the morning of Friday, June 10 from 10am onwards.
