Coffee morning to be 'the best ever'
A coffee morning to raise money for a cancer charity is hoped to be the “best ever”.
The Borehamwood and Elstree Rotary Club are holding the event to raise money for Macmillan Nurses, in memory of a rotarian who died of cancer last Novemver.
Steve Elmer, who was in his 60s when he died of the disease, was a keen member of the club and the group are making sure his legacy lives on.
David Clout, press officer for the club, said he hopes the morning will raise awareness about cancer and encourage people to donate.
“It is always good to raise awareness for such a good cause, so I am really looking forward to the event.
“People can come down, have a cup of drink and learn about the work that Macmillan do.
“We are particularly passionate about supporting Macmillan because Steve was too young to die, he went way too soon.
“This is our way of giving back and saying thank you to the charity who support people in the same boat as him.”
Mr Clout said he hopes the event, which will be held in Metrobank in Theobold Street, Borehamwood, will raise up to £500.
Raffle tickets will also be available to buy on the day, with money going towards Macmillan Nurses.
He added: “We are very grateful that Metrobank are letting us host the morning there - we hope to make this coffee morning the best ever.”
It will Be held on Friday, September 28 from 10am to 2pm.
