The borough is set to unite this week in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support with the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event getting in full swing this morning.
Dozens of coffee mornings will be taking place in and around Accrington to raise funds for the cancer charity.
Hyndburn mayor Marlene Haworth will be attending events over the course of the week and paid tribute to all those involved.
She said: “I am looking forward to it, Macmillan is one of my mayoral charities as it is a charity close to my heart.
“I chose it in memory of former councillor Pam Barton who lost her battle with cancer earlier this year.
“She was a big supporter of Macmillan and like her I think these people do a fantastic job.”
This year Macmillan estimates that over 220,000 people across the UK will register to hold a coffee morning, with over 5 million cups of coffee and 12 million slices of cake due to be consumed.
A Macmillan spokesman said: “With 2.5 million people currently living with cancer, this year Macmillan needs more people than ever to get involved. Every cup of coffee bought, cake baked and laugh shared at a coffee morning helps Macmillan to continue to providing vital services and support to ensure no one faces cancer alone.”
