Staff at Haven Veterinary Group in Ketwell Lane, Hedon are supporting the annual event, that raised a record £15 million in 2012, by offering visitors drinks and cakes under cover of a gazebo from 10am on 27thSeptember.  There will also be a raffle and tombola to raise additional funds.

Event organiser Evie Beattie explained the rationale for the event; “We all know people whose lives have been touched by cancer and we wanted to do something fun to support this worthwhile cause.  We try to organize two big fundraising initiatives a year and we’re proud to be involved in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.”

The coffee morning comes on the back of practice owner and principal veterinary surgeon Jim Morris’s, three day charity bike ride from London to Paris that raised over £1,000 for British Heart Foundation.
