Chemists consumed coffee and cake today as part of The World's Biggest Coffee Morning, raising £348 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

The Department of Chemistry took part in Macmillan Cancer Support's annual 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning' on Friday 27 September. Many staff and students generously donated homemade cakes and biscuits, and were kind enough to support this excellent cause by buying goodies to eat and share with their colleagues. 

"This is the second year we've raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support, and we are so pleased with the generous response we've had," said Kathleen Pickett, Welfare, Training and Development Adviser.  "I'd like to say a big thank you to all those who baked, bought and/or donated today."

Many researchers in this department are involved in research into the causes of cancer and investigating potential life-changing therapies. And some, of course, have been affected by cancer personally.  "I am so pleased to say that we raised a total of £348," said Kathleen.
