Local Independent Unionist MLA John McCallister has congratulated everyone who organized and supported the Macmillan “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.”
“I attended one on Friday organised by Graham’s Ice Cream Rathfriland and it was great to see it so well supported.
“Sadly most families I know have been affected by cancer in some way – so we all know the fantastic work charities like Macmillan do.
“Local fundraising is vital and those who attended the coffee mornings joined over five million people across the UK who were expected to take part on the 26th September.
“Fundraising locally is hugely worthwhile and can help to make a real difference to people’s lives at a time when they need it most.
“Some of the money raised is used to fund vital Macmillan posts in the community.
