Masquerade coffee morning supports fight against cancer

Masquerade coffee morning supports fight against cancer
11th March 2009

A Barchester home has had a mysteriously-themed coffee morning in aid of a major charity in the UK and its fight against one of the biggest threats to people in the country.

Staff and residents at Stamford Bridge Beaumont had the masquerade event to support the work of Macmillan Cancer Support, with masks, coffee and cake galore for all of those taking part.

The event, known as the World's Biggest Coffee Morning, raised £7.5 million in the previous year and aims to improve the lives of people and their families who live with cancer, partnering with schools and offices around the country.

"Each and every day in the UK, another 780 people are diagnosed with cancer. Macmillan's support means that they don't have to go through these traumatic times alone," explained the charity.

By 2010, Macmillan aims to be in contact with every person in the UK who is living with cancer.
