Local MSP for the Linlithgow Constituency, Fiona Hyslop, has today raised a mug in support of Macmillan’s Coffee Morning as Macmillan celebrate their annual coffee morning.
The charity fundraiser sees millions of pounds donated every year to help support people affected by cancer. The money raised helps fund Macmillan services across Scotland to make sure people living with cancer can access the physical, emotional and financial support they need.
Nearly all (98%) of Macmillan’s funding comes directly from donations, but disruption caused by Covid-19 means demand for its services is high, while fundraising remains challenging. The charity estimates it could see a combined £40 million drop in its Coffee Morning income across 2020 and 2021.
“The pandemic has had a significant impact on the lives of people living with cancer and support from Macmillan is needed now more than ever.
“Macmillan Cancer Support do an excellent job in supporting people within West Lothian and all over Scotland, and that’s why I’m proud to raise a mug today in support of Macmillan Coffee Morning.
