On Friday last week, Lynne Featherstone MP visited two coffee mornings which were being hosted in Hornsey and Wood Green. The Liberal Democrat MP firstly dropped in on residents at Minster Walk in Hornsey, and then visited a local Barclays Branch in Wood Green.
The coffee morning at Minster Walk was hosted by local resident Phyliss Grant. The MP spoke with residents at Minster Walk about their own experiences with Cancer, and also took the opportunity to discuss a mixture of local and national issues. At Barclays, Lynne Featherstone spoke to staff about the coffee morning, which they take part in every year.
Both coffee mornings were being held as part of Macmillan’s ‘world’s biggest coffee morning’ event. Macmillan runs the event every year as a fundraiser. They ask people across the UK – and sometimes further afield – to hold a coffee morning, and collect donations. This year, over £10million has been raised to assist Macmillan in helping people with Cancer.
Following the event, Lynne Featherstone MP said:
“I was delighted to take part in the coffee morning fundraiser. Macmillan is a fantastic organisation, providing invaluable help and support to cancer sufferers.
“We face huge health inequalities in Haringey, and it is reassuring to know that organisations like Macmillan are there to support those in need, regardless of where they’re from.
“I wish the organisation the very best for all of their future activities.”
