Charity’s thanks to Midlothian residents

Macmillan supporters have shown growing support for the charity.

Midlothian residents raised £23,196 at last year’s World Biggest Coffee Morning campaign – an increase of 21 per cent on the previous year. There were 112 coffee mornings held in the area – 18 more than last year.

Macmillan’s director of fundraising Lynda Thomas said: “I’d like to extend a huge thank you to our wonderful coffee morning hosts and guests who raised £10 million for Macmillan Cancer Support, which is just fantastic.

“What an amazing achievement for everybody who took part and helped the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning be such a huge success for Macmillan.”

This year, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is on Friday, September 28, and hosts can join the party early by registering at or calling 0845 602 1246.
