Relay For Life Midleton is Holding a Coffee Morning for Cancer Survivors Next Saturday

By Alan Sheehan


Relay for Life Midleton is holding a coffee morning on Saturday, 10 June for cancer survivors who may be interested in taking part in this year’s relay event.
The coffee morning will be hosted by My Place, on the Mill Road in Midleton, between 11am-1pm. The event provides an opportunity for survivors who would like to become involved with this year’s Relay for Life on 26 August or who would just like more information to speak with the organisers.
“The coffee morning is for any and all survivors,” said Elaine Duggan, Public Relations Officer for Relay for Life Midleton. “We would ask anyone who is a survivor, or is family with a survivor or knows a survivor to just let them know this is on. They are more than welcome to come. We would like make contact with any interested survivors now before the Relay in August. It is just an informal chat with teas, coffees and scones just to help us get their contact details if we don’t have them already.”
Registration forms will be available at the coffee morning for teams or individuals for the relay.
Midleton Relay for Life is a 24 hour team-based walking relay, which will be held at the CBS Secondary School in Midleton for the second straight year. Each team comprises between 10-15 members with at least one member required to remain walking the course at all times, however teams are not mandatory and neither is attending the event for the full runtime. Last year it raised €20,000 for the Irish Cancer Society.
“This coffee morning is just our way of getting in touch and letting the survivors know we are there,” said Ms Duggan, “and that we would be honoured to have them on the coffee morning and for the Relay itself. After all, it’s all about the survivors; it’s because of them that we do this.”
