A year ago tomorrow my wife was diagnosed with incurable cancer and she wanted to mark the anniversary by doing something positive so she's holding a Macmillan coffee morning.
But she doesn't do things by halves.
The coffee morning is being held at Brookside Central tomorrow (Saturday 24th September) from 11am to 2pm. As well as tea, coffee, pop and cake there will be stalls and a raffle. Thanks to the generosity of our friends and neighbours in Brookside and further afield there are loads of raffle prizes including a meal for two at Telford Golf & Country Club, a month's membership of the leisure club at the Holiday Inn, wine, flowers, jewellery, cut and blow dry, shilac nails and other things that escape my mind at the moment.
Take 5 Café have very generously donated cake and £100 towards the event (as well as the use of their dwindling supply of cups).
Cancer is devastating not only for the sufferer but for their family and friends as well. Macmillan provides support to everyone affected by cancer and events like these help to make sure that they can keep on providing these services. Please come along and give her your support and raise money for an excellent charity.
