THOUSANDS of pounds has been raised for charity after businesses had a 'Cuppa for Cancer'.

Organised by Hope for Tomorrow, the second annual Cuppa for Cancer Care event raised £12k to help its Wiltshire mobile chemotherapy unit treat more patients in convenient locations.

Over the course of a week, starting on World Cancer Day, February 4, groups gathered to sample delicious sweet treats and enjoy their hot beverage of choice.

More than 50 events took place across the country, with businesses and homes hosting colleagues, friends and family, all in the name of fundraising.

Salisbury Journal: A total of £12k has been raised during the 'Cuppa for Cancer Care' event.

Tina Seymour, chief executive of Hope for Tomorrow, said: “The response to our second Cuppa for Cancer Care event has been brilliant.

“We’ve loved seeing all the photos that have been shared; everyone has put so much effort in to make their event a success. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that took part. We know that more money is coming in too, so the final total will be even bigger."

Tina said the charity relies solely on fundraising to keep 10 mobile cancer care units provided to NHS partners on the road, costing £212 per day, per unit.

“This sense of community is so important when you’re going through cancer treatment and is something that we’ve also seen in the Cuppa events that have taken place; people coming together to help make cancer treatment more accessible to the people that need it," Tina added.
