A TWO-TIME cancer warrior is organising a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The event will be on Saturday, September 21, from 10am to 1pm at Belmans Court, in Dovercourt.

Patricia May, who is 90 years old, had two operations for cancer. She said: “I want to repay them, it’s the least I could do after all their help. My granddaughter is having her hair shaved for me on the day as well.

“This is the third time and most probably the last time I’m organising an event to raise money for Macmillan. I want to make this one a great send-off.”

Mrs May said that last year she fundraised £1,300 for Cancer Research and this year she’s hoping for a bit more.

Her three sons and three daughters will all be there to help her.

She said: “I have such a supportive family.”

Kelly Bruwer, who is Mrs May’s granddaughter, said: “I have very long hair, right to the end of my back.

“I am a bit nervous about cutting it, but my granny asked, and I couldn’t refuse her.

“We’d like to raise about £1, 500 for Macmillan. I am wearing my T-shirt from Macmillan everyday to work to promote the event, as Macmillan is trying very hard to help and support people.

“This event is great for the community, as people can connect, especially older people as they sometimes tend to be lonely. It is a great opportunity to make friends.”

They will also have a raffle with many donated prizes. Admission will be £1 including tea and coffee.
