CUSTOMERS visiting a garden centre this month will receive free tea and coffee for a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.

In support for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, during September Havant Garden Centre is inviting people to go along to a coffee morning it is hosting on Friday September 30 from 9am until midday.

Gaynor Adamson, manager of the garden centre on Bartons Road in Havant, said: ‘We are hosting the event as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, which is taking place nationwide. We will be providing free tea and coffee between 9am and midday and inviting customers to make a donation to the charity.

‘We hope lots of people come along to the event and help us support this worthy cause.’

Last year more than 43,000 official coffee mornings were held, raising more than £8m for the charity.

Charles Byrne, head of corporate partnerships and events at Macmillan, said: ‘We are very grateful for the support from Havant Garden Centre. There are more than two million people in the UK living with cancer and every penny we raise will help us reach out to even more people who need our support.

Macmillan Cancer Support aims to improve the lives of people affected by cancer by providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support.
