Macmillan Coffee Morning

On Friday 25th September, Radio Harrow hosted a special Macmillan Coffee Morning show from 7am to noon.

Broadcasting live from the Macmillan offices near the main entrance of Northwick Park Hospital, the show featured several interviews with guests throughout the morning including the Mayor of Harrow.

Coffee and cake was on sale at the Macmillan stand at the hospital and people were invited to come along to get their morning treats and donate.

Gary Walker hosted the show and invited several guests on including Mary Finn, the manager of the Macmillan Centre at Northwick Park Hospital who spoke about their services, and Radio Harrow Trustee Keith Chilvers who came on to speak about the support he has personally received from Macmillan.

Aravinda Indrasinghe, the manager of DHL who were sponsoring and matching all contributions made at the event also joined Gary in the studio alongside local musicians H-BOSS, Gaz Reynolds and Ruhi Rajani.

The show raised awareness of Macmillan Cancer Support and the fantastic work they do to help people facing cancer.

The Macmillan Coffee morning is the World’s Largest Coffee Morning as people all across the UK are invited to get together for a coffee and donate the cost of the cuppa to the charity.

Last year they raised over twenty-five million pounds for the cause and the whole event is a fantastic way to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
