    Cambridge Central Mosque will be hosting a coffee morning on Friday, September 30, to raise funds for people battling cancer and their families.

    The event, held in cooperation with Macmillan Cancer Support, was planned after the success of last year’s event which raised more than £13,562, Cambridge News reported.  

    “Cambridge Central Mosque is once again hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning, to raise awareness and funds for Macmillan Cancer Support, alongside others across the UK and elsewhere!” the mosque website said.

    “It’s a great way to support a great cause with the money collected supporting those bravely fighting cancer.”

    As people drink coffee or tea and eat cake with a community spirit, millions will be raised for Macmillan cancer support.

    The mosque will also host a speaker event, open to the public, between 10:30-11.30 onsite, discussing cancer and its effects on local communities.

    Speakers include Professor Jean Abraham (Macmillan), Cllr Mark Ashton (Mayor of Cambridge), Dr. Lorraine Petersen (Arthur Rank Hospice) Somaiya Khan-Piachaud (Baraka Khan Foundation), Shahida Rahman (CCM Trustee), Elaine Chapman & Sue Arnold (Cambridge Cancer Research Hospital).

    Along with the mosque event, many people all over the UK will host their own coffee mornings and make donations to the charity.

    The first Macmillan Coffee Morning happened in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cup to Macmillan in the process.

    Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £290 million for Macmillan.
