Libraries NI invites you to Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Over the coming weeks, many local libraries across Northern Ireland are taking part in the charity fundraiser and people are being encouraged to call in for a cuppa and a slice of cake to support Macmillan.
Being told ‘you have cancer’ can affect so much more than your health – it can also affect your family, your job, even your ability to pay the bills. Macmillan is here to help people with cancer live life as fully as they can and rely on the generosity of the public.
Jim O’Hagan, Libraries NI Chief Executive explains:
“Libraries NI, in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, provide information booklets in all libraries to people living with cancer. We are delighted that over 80 libraries across Northern Ireland will be hosting a Coffee Morning. What better way is there to help than by having a cup of coffee with friends in the library?
With so many libraries taking part, there is sure to be a coffee morning taking place near you. We would love you to call in and support Macmillan with the vital work they do.”
Heather Monteverde, Head of Services for Macmillan in Northern Ireland added:
“There are 63,000 people living with cancer in NI, and almost one in two of us will experience cancer at some point in our lifetime. Fundraising events such as Coffee Morning are really important to ensure we can continue to fund vital services here in Northern Ireland.”
Everyone is welcome to pop into a local library and enjoy a cup of coffee all for a great cause! Visit the Libraries NI website at www.librariesni.org.uk for details of all libraries taking part in Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
