This year’s event focused on the challenges that people can face at different stages of their cancer experience.

Following the success of Macmillan’s biggest annual fund-raising event last month, the charity hosted a coffee morning at which MPs and peers had the opportunity to meet with and hear from people living cancer.

Macmillan chief executive Lynda Thomas set out how the charity is implementing a new strategy to help meet the growing needs of the increasing numbers of people living with cancer.

Ms Hair said: “This year’s event provided a really important opportunity to hear more about the financial, physical and emotional challenges that people can face after finishing cancer treatment. I also welcomed the chance to learn more about the support that Macmillan offers to people affected by cancer.”

There is still time to get involved with the charity’s biggest annual fund-raiser and details can be found at www.macmillan.org.uk/coffee.
