The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is returning this month to help people fighting cancer.

It has now become one of the biggest fundraising events for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The charity provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support to people living with cancer.

The year’s event will take place on September 28, and Melton borough businesses, organisations and individuals are asked to either host their own event or attend one.

Last year, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning raised more than £27 million and with your help, this can be another successful year.

The first-ever coffee morning for the charity happened in 1990.

Since then, the coffee mornings have raised more than £200 million for Macmillan.

Janet Gilchrist, of the Melton Mowbray Macmillan Cancer Support Committee, said: “It is not too late to sign up for a coffee morning pack - people need to go to coffee.macmillan.org.uk to sign up.”

Although the official date is September 28, you can host your event on whatever day is convenient for you.

If your holding a Macmillan coffee morning, let us know so we can publish the details where possible in future editions.
