Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

4 October 2019

Crosscanonby St John’s School is hosting an event for
Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Crosscanonby St John’s School is hoping to raise much-needed money for people living with cancer by hosting an event as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World Biggest Coffee Morning.


The event is being held on Friday 4th October 2019 in the school hall at 2:30pm. We are inviting people to come along, share in the fun and raise vital funds at the same time for the growing number of people living with cancer across the UK.


Macmillan is almost entirely funded by donations and simply cannot support the growing number of people with cancer who need them without the public’s help. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost 4 million by 2030.


The children and staff at our school say: “We are hosting our coffee afternoon because cancer can affect anyone, and it impacts on every part of your life. Macmillan provides financial, physical and emotional support for people living with cancer, so that’s why we want to raise money so that everybody gets the help they need”.
