Online coffee morning raises cancer funds

Connectwomen.com wants to generate £2.5m

Britain's biggest cancer charity is to hold the largest coffee morning ever by connecting people over the Net. Macmillan Cancer Relief hopes that the "world's biggest coffee morning with Nescafe" will help raise more than £2.5 million. Last year a million people took part in 20,000 individual events up and down the country raising in excess of £2 million for the charity. This year, the annual 1 October event will allow people to hold virtual coffee morning in chat rooms on a new portal (www.connectwomen.com) aimed specifically at women. ®
