Cancer services in west Norfolk have received a boost following a donation of more than £11,000 raised from a Macmillan Day held by West Winch Friends of Macmillan during the charity’s annual fundraiser ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’.The West Winch Friends for Macmillan Committee presented a cheque for £11,352 to staff at the Macmillan Cancer Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The Macmillan Day was held on 27th September where the group showcased a vintage inspired Macmillan 2020 calendar featuring women who have all been affected by cancer in some way.

Michelle Hutchinson, Macmillan Fundraising Manager, said: “I would like to offer a huge thank you to West Winch Friends for their support and generosity. It was a real pleasure to work with the team and see all their months of planning and hard work come to fruition on their Macmillan Day for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 27th September.

“The amount of money raised is incredible and it will help us to be there for the growing number of people living with cancer, offering physical, financial and practical support to those who need it.

“Whether it’s specialist cancer nurses, GPs, therapists or advisers, we can only offer the support that people with cancer need thanks to the tireless fundraising efforts of amazing supporters like West Winch Friends.”
