One in three people will develop cancer over the course of their lifetime. With over 200 different types it is a disease that effects everyone regardless of age, gender, health or wealth.
Friday 24th September saw the holding of coffee mornings across the country in an effort to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The charity looks to provide practical, medical and financial support for cancer sufferers.
Ashley Fox, Conservative Member of the European Parliament for the South West of England and Gibraltar, was delighted to have been able to attend the Brentry Macmillan Coffee Morning to show his support for the hard workers who raise money for such a worthy cause.
“No one is immune from the effects of Cancer. If we don’t suffer from it personally then we will know friends and family that do. It is vital that those who are suffering with the condition be given the highest quality care,” commented Ashley.
“That is why I think that it is so important that we support events like this, we need to show our financial and personal support for those that are suffering and those who are trying to help. Local campaigners like Carole Lye and Cynthia Reynolds who organised the Brentry Coffee Morning work so hard to raise much needed money for the charity and I thoroughly applaud their hard work. ”
