The Aberdeen Donside MSP is hoping to raise some vital funds for the cancer support charity and is encouraging members of the public to come along and support the day. The event is taking place at Dyce Church Hall, Victoria Street on Friday 29th September from 9:30am – 12:30pm.
“On Friday 29th September, the annual World’s Biggest Coffee Morning takes place. It is an event in support of Macmillan Cancer Care, and is supported by politicians, businesses, public sector organisations & community groups.
“For me, the event this year takes on a very personal dimension. I lost my father to cancer in February of this year, he was only sixty years old. During the course of his brave fight against the disease, he was supported by Macmillan nurses. My family saw first-hand the important work that is being done by this organisation and their dedicated support staff.
“The Macmillan event gives me the opportunity to give a little something back to Macmillan for the support they offered to my dad, and to our family, during the time of his illness.
“I’m therefore hosting a coffee morning in Dyce Church Hall to try and help raise funds. Feel free to pop along between 9.30am and 12.30pm, entry is £2 for adults and 50p for children. There will also be some stalls to help raise additional funds, and plenty tea, coffee & cake to keep folk fed and watered!
“I hope to see as many folks as possible there, and that they will help me raise some money for a worthy cause.”
