October 2, 2012 9:57 AM

Barclays employees in Wallington took time out for what matters with local MP Tom Brake last Friday, as part of Macmillan Cancer Support's 22nd World's Biggest Coffee Morning.

Employees got together to serve their customers a slice of something sweet and a cuppa to raise money for people affected by cancer. Local MP Tom Brake was also on hand to help with the eating, drinking and of course fund-raising.

Tom Brake said, 'Macmillan Cancer Support does an amazing job supporting people with cancer, providing practical, medical, emotional and financial help. The Coffee Morning provides an incredible opportunity to get together with the local community, family and friends, for a truly worthwhile cause. There couldn't be an easier way to help people affected by cancer - each donation really does make a huge difference."

Tom Brake also visited the coffee morning held at the Holy Trinity Centre in Wallington, where volunteers had baked a range of sumptuous cakes.

Last year's coffee mornings raised a record £10 million, and £60 million have been raised since the event's inception in 1991. For more information about the Macmillan coffee morning visit
