MP John Healey is backing Macmillan Cancer Support by hosting another coffee morning.
The popular event, held every year at the MP’s office in High Street, Wath-upon-Dearne, usually raises around £500.
Coffee mornings are held throughout the country as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising drive, which raises £8.5m for the charity.
John said: “I know many local people have personal experience of the problems a cancer diagnosis can bring to patients and their family, and I know that Macmillan has been there to support many of those in need.
“So I am hosting another coffee morning at my office and everyone is welcome to come along.
“It’s always a great event which is extremely well-supported. Local people are very generous.”
This year’s coffee morning is on Friday 28 September, 10am to noon.
As well as tea, coffee and cakes there will be stalls, a raffle and a tombola.
Any donations would be gratefully received and can be dropped off at the office Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. For more details phone 01709 875943.
