Macmillan Coffee Morning at Rollits

September 29, 2023

Julian joined local law firm Rollits to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research with their coffee morning.

Earlier this month, Julian met with Macmillan Cancer Support in Parliament to commit to their What Are We Waiting For campaign. There are approximately 8,300 people living with cancer in York and this is expected to rise to 11,700 by 2030. In 2022, Macmillan’s Support Line service supported 302 people in York.

Speaking after the coffee morning, Julian said:

“It was fantastic to see so many Macmillan Coffee Mornings being held in York today. All of our lives will be affected by cancer, either directly or via a friend or relative, making the work of Macmillan Cancer Support so invaluable.

“While I may not have won the raffle, I did enjoy the fantastic range of cakes on offer – there are definitely some future Bake Off stars in York’s legal community!

“We need to invest in research as well as treatment to ensure everyone has access to first class cancer care.”
