She hosted a public coffee morning at her office at 72 St. James’s Street, Kemp Town, Brighton on Friday, September 26 between 10 a.m. and noon.

Every day in this area 23 people receive the devastating news they have cancer.

By 2030, there will be 121,400 people living with or beyond cancer in Sussex – that’s enough to fill Brighton and Hove Albion’s football stadium nearly four times.

There are 187 Macmillan nurses and professionals working in this area and last year Macmillan’s support line helped with the questions and worries of 1,924 people from this region.

Nancy said: “I am delighted that our coffee morning today raised £125.16 for Macmillan Cancer Support. I would like to thank everyone who dropped in to enjoy some delicious home-made cake for their generosity.”
