The Mayor of Hailsham joined staff and customers at Stevens & Carter Estate Agents in the High Street this morning [30 September] for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, and is grateful to residents and visitors who came along.

Mayor Councillor Paul Holbrook attended the event to show his support, and a whole range of tasty cakes, savoury snacks and coffees were on offer at the estate agents’ premises.

“It was a wonderful event, and once again the people in Hailsham showed their support, helping to raise money to fund Macmillan’s services,” said Councillor Holbrook.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraising event, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, raised over £11m last year and now in its 32nd year and with the help of fundraisers in Hailsham, Macmillan hopes to beat money raised last year across the UK.

Funds from the event will go towards providing practical, financial and healthcare support to people affected by cancer, as well as independent, expert, up-to-date information services to meet the needs of people diagnosed with cancer.

Councillor Holbrook added: “Macmillan is such a wonderful organisation. It’s heart-warming to witness everyone getting involved with the charity, helping to raise money and awareness for a very worthy cause. Stevens & Carter have put so much hard work into fundraising for this important charity and I am delighted to see such a good turnout at today’s Coffee Morning.”

“Nobody should have to face cancer alone and we should all be extremely grateful to the amazing people who fundraise for Macmillan. Every penny raised will provide vital support.”
