Samuel Kurtz MS joined the Macmillan Cancer Support team at the Senedd to mark the charity’s annual Coffee Morning fundraising event.
Macmillan’s annual coffee morning usually sees millions of pounds donated to help support people affected by cancer.
The money raised helps fund Macmillan services to make sure people with cancer can get the physical, emotional and financial support needed.
Speaking about their support for the annual fundraising event, Samuel Kurtz MS said:
“Macmillan, alongside their partners in the NHS, work tirelessly to support and assist those living with cancer.
“However, doing so at a time when the cost of living is so high, services have expectedly come under increased pressure.
“More than 98% of Macmillan’s funding comes directly from donation, and without it, thousands of people could miss out on vital care and support.
“These events allow us to raise funds and ensure that people can access these important services.
“There’s no right or wrong way to hold a coffee morning – it can be whatever you make it. I really hope people will pull out all the stops to do just that.”
Macmillan’s Coffee Morning this year falls on Friday 30 September but local events can be held throughout the year.
