QEH will be serving up a treat at the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Volunteers and staff at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital are hoping to raise over one thousand pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support during their annual fundraiser ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.

Patients, visitors and staff alike are invited to visit The Hub for a well-earned coffee and slice of cake between 9.30am – 12.30pm on Friday, 27 September.

A raffle will also be held in aid of Macmillan. The funds raised will ensure the charity can continue to help the growing number of people living with cancer in Norfolk. The team are currently appealing for raffle prizes from the local community.

Macmillan Information and Support Manager, Vicky Mitchell said: “We are always incredibly grateful to the businesses and individuals in West Norfolk who support our raffle and we are again appealing for prizes to support this fantastic cause.

“We encourage anyone in the area to pop in for some coffee and cake with the team. Every year we receive a fantastic response to our World’s Biggest Coffee morning and we are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible.”

In 2018, Coffee Mornings hosted in Norfolk raised more than £327,000, with King’s Lynn alone raising £67,900. Macmillan spends these donations on vital cancer support services which provide physical, financial and emotional support to people with cancer.

For more information or to support the raffle, please contact Vicky Mitchell by email: Vicky.mitchell@qehkl.nhs.uk
