Unwavering support for Macmillan Cancer Care from Beckton community

A recession could not halt the annual generosity of residents and friends in Beckton who got together again to raise money for a worthy cause.

Jean Field, of Shaftesbury Court sheltered housing accommodation in Sapphire Close, holds a coffee morning full of refreshments and activities for her neighbours and the local community every year.

The cheery group fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Care, a cause particularly close to Jean’s heart, who support nurses and volunteers who care for those with the life-threatening disease.

Everyone pitched in with the refreshments and cake while a couple of the residents ran a raffle and made a tombola for entertainment.

The charitable bunch raised just over �260 for Macmillan Cancer Care.

Generous Jean said: “The money was raised by people who live on the premises along with some friends, some relations and carers.

“It was a very successful morning.”
