Nadine Coyle, who is currently appearing in “Lord of the Dance” at the London Palladium, says: “‘I’m delighted to be supporting the 24th annual Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday, September 26. I love nothing more than getting together with friends for coffee and cake, so it really is the perfect way to raise money for such a brilliant cause. My uncle was looked after by the team at Macmillan, when he was ill with cancer, and my family will be forever indebted to the amazing service they provided during that difficult time.”

Macmillan Cancer Support is hoping Friday, September 26 will see 5 million cups of coffee drunk and 10 million slices of cake eaten with the aim of raising over £20million for people affected by cancer right across the UK.

Here in Northern Ireland 3,500 people have registered to hold their own coffee morning and Macmillan NI is hoping to raise over half a million pounds.

The idea remains simple: get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours to hold a coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan, with every donation helping to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. There’s still time to register for a kit, for more information visit: www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee, call 0845 602 1246 or text COFFEE to 70550.
