Shamsah Lalji, Owner and Director of the Radfield Home Care branch, explained, “We all know someone close to us who have been diagnosed with cancer. The number of people in the UK who are caring for someone with cancer has soared from around 1.1 million in 2011 to almost 1.5 million in 2016*. Macmillan Cancer Support provides a range of services to those caring for someone with cancer. We want to help and do our part by raising money”.

Ped Millichamp, Creative Director at The Willow explained, “When Radfield Home Care approached us about hosting a MacMillan Coffee Morning with them, we jumped at the chance. Working in a health restaurant and clinic, we often see how ill health can affect so many lives. Our fundraising activities support many local charities and our customers always support us in raising money and awareness for these great causes so ‘letting them have their cake and eat it’ is a little payback for them!”
