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 macmillan.org.uk/coffee or calling 0845 602 1246.
