A Banbury care home is asking the community to join them for coffee, cake and a chat to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Highmarket House is taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and hopes as many people as possible will join them in supporting the millions of people facing cancer in the UK on Friday, September 28.

Residents and visitors to the care home on North Bar Place will be able to enjoy a relaxing morning sharing a cuppa with friends, along with a selection of homemade cakes and treats – all available for a small donation to Macmillan.

Every year Macmillan organises the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in kitchens, offices and village halls across the globe to fundraise for people living with cancer.

Since the very first coffee morning in 1990, over £200m has been raised for the charity, enabling it to support individuals from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.

Care home manager Julia Joy said: “We understand how cancer impacts the lives of not only the people battling the illness themselves, but also the lives of all those around them – a sad reality which many of us know far too well.

“Taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning provides us with an opportunity to show our support to the fantastic Macmillan nurses and give thanks for all of the incredible work they do.

"It also creates a lovely occasion to invite local people, family and friends to join us for a cuppa and a catch up while raising funds to support the vital services provided by Macmillan.

"It’s set to be a great morning and we hope to see lots of people from the community here on the day.”
