Macmillan Cancer Support held the 18th annual World's Biggest Coffee Morning on (and around) September 26 and I would like to thank everyone who took part in Devon and helped make the event such a huge success in this special anniversary year. A total of 34,492 events were registered across the UK, of which a staggering 892 coffee mornings took place in Devon alone. These figures understate the true position because many people hold an event but do not register for their free coffee morning pack! All the money raised will go to providing invaluable support to local people affected by cancer. Last year, coffee mornings in Devon raised £124,000 (£7.5million across the country) and we are confident that local people will have done us proud yet again.Caroline Grafton-Grattan,County Chairman
