The World's Biggest Coffee Morning in Chiswell Green raises more than £800 for Macmillan Cancer Support
Residents enjoyed a slice of cake and a cup of coffee at The World's Biggest Coffee Morning in Chiswell Green on Thursday to raise more than £800 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The city’s mayor, Annie Brewster, joined over 200 people to raise £864.19 at the charity event in Greenwood Park Community Centre.
Residents picked up honey produced in Marshalswick, homemade cakes, jams, chutneys, marmalade and greetings cards. Visitors were also able to treat themselves to reflexology and aromatherapy treatments.
The Mayor said: "I am delighted to be able to take part in Chiswell Green’s Macmillan Coffee Morning.
"It is wonderful to see the community working together to support people who are living with cancer. I am grateful to the volunteers who have worked so hard to make this happen, and to everyone who came along to support the event."
Also attending the event as patrons of Macmillan Cancer Support were Anne Main MP and Lord Charles Cecil.
Avril Foster, chairman of Macmillan Cancer Support St Albans & District Voluntary Committee, said: "Our committee members and loyal supporters have taken part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning for a number of years.
"The wonderful support of St Stephen’s Parish Council, the local community and the generosity of our local shops and stores means we have no overheads to pay. Without such generosity we would not be able to hold fundraising events to help those who are living with cancer.
"We are proud that we can say that every penny donated goes to help the many people who are diagnosed and living with cancer."
