Beckton community coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Care

Newham residents are invited to a community coffee morning to raise money for a cancer charity.

Jean Field, who lives in Shaftesbury Court sheltered housing association in Beckton. wants to get locals together for a chat over hot drinks and biscuits to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Care.

A charity close to Jean’s heart, she encourages people to donate every year - even persuading nearby Sainsbury’s and ASDA supermarkets to give her items to auction.

There will also be a raffle and a tombola made by local residents.

To join Jean, just turn up at Shaftesbury Court, Beckton, E6 5RB on June 19 at 10.30am where there will be someone on the door.
