Dr Dan supports Macmillan's 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' fundraising event

Dr Dan with Rose Rogerson in Otley as part of MacmillanCoffee mornings were recently held across Ipswich and Suffolk as part of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ fundraising event. Dan always like to show his support for this annual event by visiting coffee mornings around Suffolk and it was a real pleasure for him to visit Peter and Rose Rogerson, who kindly opened their home in Otley to local residents, as part of the successful fundraising morning this year.

Now in its 22nd year, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support has proved extremely popular and last year over £10 million was raised nationally. Unfortunately, many of us will know of someone who suffers from cancer, and will be all too aware of the challenges this condition brings. That is why Macmillan Cancer Support is such an important charity, as it helps to care for those living with and beyond cancer by providing specialist nurses and social workers who give emotional, medical, practical and financial support during what can be a very difficult time. As a doctor, Dan has worked closely with Macmillan Cancer Support nurses in the past and knows from firsthand experience what a vital role they play by caring for and providing support to cancer patients.

Dan would like to thank Peter and Rose Rogerson for putting on the coffee morning, which brought the local community together and for inviting him to attend what was an extremely successful event.
