Fiona raises a cup to help people with cancer live life as fully as they can

Local MSP Fiona Hyslop joined Macmillan this week to raise a cup to the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

Fiona joined Janice Preston, Macmillan Head of Services in Scotland for the charity’s flagship fundraising campaign which aims to raise millions to help people with cancer live life as fully as they can.

Fiona said;

“Being told you have cancer can affect so much more than your health. Macmillan have over 100 years’ experience in supporting people through their cancer diagnosis.

“Macmillan coffee mornings are a great way to raise awareness of the charity and help they offer and to raise much needed funds to support them. West Lothian has a great track record of hosting World’s Biggest Coffee Mornings in aid of Macmillan and so I would urge my constituents to find a coffee morning near them and give their support for this worthy cause.”
