Newham Council raises �650 for breast cancer

A coffee morning at Newham Council’s Dockside offices raised more than �650 for breast cancer.

Council staff and visitors enjoyed home-made cakes and bought raffle tickets in support of the charity Breast Cancer Care. Prizes were donated by council staff. Books and crafts were also on sale at the offices in the Royal Docks.

Even Mayor Sir Robin Wales joined in and helped serve cakes and coffee to staff.

He said: “Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in this country and it is important we do our bit to help raise awareness of it.

“We want to help people identify the risk of this type of cancer and the money we’ve raised will help Breast Cancer Care provide support and information about prevention and cure to the thousands of people across the UK.”
