A group of employees from Anaeko has raised donations for people living with cancer by hosting an event as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World Biggest Coffee Morning.
The event was held on on Friday 27th September at Anaeko’s Belfast Office.
Macmillan is almost entirely funded by donations and simply cannot support the growing number of people with cancer who need them without the public’s help. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There are over 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK and this is set to grow to almost 4 million by 2030.
We took some photos on the event and we are happy to share these photos with you.

Cancer can affect anyone
We hosted our coffee morning because cancer can affect anyone, and it impacts on every part of your life. Macmillan provides financial, physical and emotional support for people living with cancer, so that’s why we want to raise money so that everybody gets the help they need.
Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer supporter charity giving personal, one to one care and support to thousands of people every day. Macmillan are the only charity supporting anyone, no matter their age, where they live and or their cancer diagnosis. We’re here to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can, providing physical, financial and emotional support. So whatever cancer throws your way, we’re right there with you.
