Local MP’s support Macmillan’s coffee morning

Chesterfield’s MP, Toby Perkins, recently helped to raise funds for people affected by cancer by attending a World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Coffee Morning - Toby Perkins and Natascha EngelOn Friday 26 September, over 200,000 events were held around the UK to raise money for Macmillan. As part of the campaign, a coffee morning was held in the House of Commons where, besides raising funds for Macmillan, MPs had the opportunity to hear about the challenges facing people living with and beyond cancer and to learn more about some of the services that Macmillan provides.

Toby was also joined at the event by neighbouring MP, Natascha Engel from the North East Derbyshire, as pictured here.

Toby said, “Macmillan’s coffee morning is a fantastic annual fixture that I am always glad to have the opportunity to support. With the number of people living with cancer increasing, this event is an important opportunity to not only raise funds for a worthy cause, but to bring people together to talk about an issue that will become more urgent in the future.”

Having raised £20m in 2013 and over £113million to date, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is the original and most successful charity fundraising event of its sort. The idea remains simple: get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours to hold a coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan, with every donation helping to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
