An MP visited businesses and encouraged people to support cancer sufferers by giving to charity as part of the world’s biggest coffee morning.
Lynne Featherstone, the MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, supported the cancer charity Macmillan’s biggest annual fundraising event on Friday.
The charity asked businesses, community groups and individuals to hold coffee mornings, where donations could be made.
The Liberal Democrat MP enjoyed coffee and cake at Barclays, in High Road, Wood Green and then visited Coffee Republic which had provided the bank with refreshments.
Ms Featherstone said it was a pleasure to participate in such a fantastic event.
She said: “It was great to see local businesses taking part in the coffee morning – so thank you to Barclays for hosting it and to Coffee Republic for so kindly providing all the food.
“There were plenty of other coffee mornings in and around Haringey, too. I hope Haringey has made a significant contribution to Macmillan’s fundraising efforts.
“Everyone knows someone who is affected by cancer – and it’s comforting to know that charities like Macmillan are working hard to raise money and support those in need.”
