Two coffee mornings are due to take place in Wrexham next week aimed raising funds for a leading national cancer charity.

Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning takes place on Friday 25 September, with Wrexham Assembly Member Lesley Griffiths hosting her own event at St Margaret’s Church Hall in Garden Village from 10am till 12 noon.

Tesco’s Wrexham store have kindly supported the event and will also be hosting an event of their own on the same day, scheduled to take place in their Community Room between 10am and 4pm. All customers are invited to join in and enjoy a coffee and a cake, with all proceeds raised going to Macmillan and Nightingale House.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has become Macmillan’s largest fundraising event for people facing cancer, last year alone helping raise £25m. People all over the UK are encouraged to host their own Coffee Mornings, with all donations raised on the day contributed to Macmillan.

Lesley Griffiths AM said: “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and the Coffee Moring is an opportunity to show our support for the charity which does so much for people in our communities.”

“I will be hosting my own Macmillan Coffee Morning at St Margaret’s Church Hall in Garden Village and all are welcome to pop along for a cake and a cuppa, and to help raise money for a very worthy cause.

“The support of Ali Roberts, Tesco’s Community Champion, has been invaluable. They are hosting a coffee morning of their own on the same day, with all of Tesco’s shoppers more than welcome to take part.”
