Zac Goldsmith MP has commended the incredible support Macmillan coffee mornings in Richmond have shown for the charity.

On Friday, September 29 Mr Goldsmith attended three coffee mornings. He visited Holy Cross Prepatory School in Coombe, Firmston House, who provide sheltered housing in Mortlake and the Hickeys Almshouses in East Sheen.

At the Hickeys Almshouses, Zac met with volunteers from Richmond Good Neighbours. They are a care group of 80 volunteers, who provide free support to over 100 elderly residents within Richmond, such as assisting with their weekly shopping, and driving clients to medical appointments and local community centres.

The group was represented by, amongst others, Ms Tor Machado, Chair of Trustees. Mr Goldsmith said: “Well done to all the bakers and organisers of the annual Macmillan coffee mornings - fantastic efforts.”

Zac commended “the organisers at Holy Cross Prepatory School, Firmston House, and the Hickeys Almshouses, for raising so much for an incredible charity. Macmillan has provided invaluable support to those affected by Cancer for 107 years. Cancer affects us all and it is inspiring to see our community coming together annually to support Macmillan’s hard work.”
