Members of Lincoln Business Club will host a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday, September 28.

Lincoln Business Club are taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, an annual event organised by Macmillan to fund their nurses, therapists and support line workers.

The coffee morning will be held at Lincoln City Football Club at 9am, after the club’s monthly networking meeting which starts at 7am.

Club members will also be asked to donate prizes to a raffle to help fund the charity, which supports millions of people living with cancer in the UK every year.

Last year, 51,000 people signed up to coffee morning and raised a record £10 million for Macmillan.

Richard Hare, Chairman of Lincoln Business Club, said: “The main aims of the club are to facilitate networking among the city’s businesses and raise money for charity.”

“By taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning we can achieve both of these aims and have a bit of fun at the same.”

Lincoln Business Club provides networking opportunities to local businesses within a 30-mile radius of the city. It donates much of its members fees to local charities.

“Unfortunately statistics show one in three of us will get cancer so it is something that effects everyone in one way or another and Macmillan does an amazing job providing medical, emotional, practical and financial support for sufferers and their families.”
