Join the folks at First Ballymena Presbyterian Church for their First Coffee’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Monday 17th October 2022 from 10am to noon.
A spokesperson for First Coffee invited everyone along by saying:
“It would be great to see you there for coffee or tea and a scone, and maybe the odd treat or two!
You can find us at First Ballymena Presbyterian Church, Meetinghouse Lane, Ballymena.”
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. Macmillan Cancer Support’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone who has cancer in the UK.
The charity was founded as the Society for the Prevention and Relief of Cancer, by Douglas Macmillan following the death of his father from the disease. In 1924, the name was changed to the National Society for Cancer Relief, which it retained until 1989 when it was changed to Cancer Relief Macmillan Fund, later changed again to Macmillan Cancer Relief. From 5 April 2006, Macmillan Cancer Relief became known as Macmillan Cancer Support, as this more accurately describes its role in supporting people who have cancer. It has adapted the principles of being a “source of support” and a “force for change”.
So why not go along to First Ballymena Presbyterian if you’re in the area and support First Coffee’s Biggest Coffee Morning and this very worthwhile and helpful charity that has been a source of support to many in our community.
