Oct. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- The World's Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest fundraising event. People across the UK hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2011 a record £10 million was raised throughout the UK.
.
Hankinson’s Birkenhead Head Office took part in this event on Friday 28th September.   £60 was raised through the sale of raffle tickets (with a national prize of £10,000 or a Fiat 500 car), cakes, biscuits and tea/coffee to members of staff and visitors.

MacMillan provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support to people suffering with cancer and their families and  they are continually pushing for a better cancer care system. To give an idea of where monies raised can be put to use,  Macmillan published the list below:-

£25 pays for a Macmillan nurse to support a family  affected by cancer for one hour.


£138 pays for 3 hours of confidential support and information for anyone with questions or concerns about cancer.


£61 pays for 4 hours for a Macmillan benefits adviser to help someone struggling with the costs of cancer.


£181 could pay for a Macmillan social worker or family support worker for a day,  helping people manage the social and practical problems of living with cancer.


£278 could keep a Macmillan information and support centre stocked for a month with all the resources it needs to support people affected by cancer.


£370 could pay for the hire of a room for a year so a self-help and support group could hold regular meetings.
