This year's coffee morning is on Friday 24th September and I will be hosting it as usual at my home. There will be homemade cakes and good company. This year's event has a special resonance for me as a friend, and former colleague from my publishing days, Karen Stafford, died on 19th July after a year-long battle with cancer. She was in her forties, a wonderful, vivacious person, a talented graphic designer, and a great mum. She leaves behind her partner, Keith, and her two boys, Louis and Miles. She will be much missed.
Please please support Macmillan Cancer Support and help improve the lives of people affected by cancer, both those living with cancer and also their families and carers.
