Please come to our Coffee Mornings for Macmillan Cancer Support. Saturday 30th Sept and Sunday 1st Oct at 10.30 to 2.30 in the Stanley Park Visitor Centre. We’ll be putting on cakes and coffee and other things like tombola and stalls. So everyone facing cancer can have a Macmillan team in their corner.
From the Macmillan website: ‘Since Douglas Macmillan founded our charity in 1911, we have grown to be the UK’s leading source of cancer support, helping more and more people affected by cancer, all with your help. In 1911, a young man named Douglas Macmillan watched his father die of cancer. His father’s pain and suffering moved Douglas so much, he founded the ‘Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer’. Douglas wanted advice and information to be provided to all people with cancer, homes for patients at low or no cost, and voluntary nurses to attend to patients in their own homes. Today much of Douglas’ legacy lives on. We are still a source of support for people living with cancer today and we are a force for improving cancer care.’
