A WIRRAL councillor is urging Globe readers to support a major fundraising campaign in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The charity’s Biggest Coffee Morning will be held on Friday, September 30.
It raised £27.5m nationally last year and Eastham Liberal Democrat Cllr Chris Carubia is hoping more people across Wirral will get involved this year to help beat the total.
Cllr Carubia told the Globe: “It is always a pleasure to participate in such a fantastic event.
“I hope Wirral make will a significant contribution to Macmillan’s fundraising efforts.

“Whether it’s a Coffee Morning at work, an afternoon tea party with the girls or a great British bake off.
“Every cake baked, cup of coffee bought and laugh shared helps Macmillan continue to ensure no one faces cancer alone and I look forward to hearing about all of the events in Wirral.”
The first official World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place in 1991.
It has gone on to be the biggest fundraising event of its kind, raising more than £165million for people affected by cancer.
The charity says by 2020 almost one in two people will get cancer at some point in their lives so the money raised at Coffee Mornings will ensure those people get the support they need.
This is the seventh year that M&S has been the official partner of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
