Raising a cuppa to support Macmillan Cancer Support

Solihull Editorial 29th Sep, 2022   0

SOLIHULL is getting the kettle on ready to raise a cuppa and funds at Macmillan Coffee events.

In Knowle survivors of convicted breast surgeon Ian Paterson will be coming together to raise a cuppa and some funds.

Former patients and family members are inviting others in Solihull, Kenilworth, Bromsgrove and Coventry who were treated by Paterson to join them at The Greswolde Arms Hotel in Knowle.

Sarah Jane Downing, the founder of the support group for convicted former breast surgeon Ian Paterson’s private patients will be hosting the event from 2pm tomorrow (Friday, September 30).

She said: “’Even now, two years after the Bishop’s Inquiry into Ian Paterson ended, there are still people only just discovering that their surgeries performed by Paterson was wrongful or unnecessary.

“I want to invite those people who are worried and those who are concerned that the surgery performed by him on their loved ones to join us for friendship and support.

“Please contact me at [email protected].”

In Dorridge it’ll be eyes down as Bright Dawn home Care invite residents to join them.

From 10am until 2pm on Friday there will be bingo, raffles on offer at The Drum and Monkey pub and restaurant on Four Ashes Road.

Organisers said: “Attending our Coffee Morning will be the perfect chance to get together over tea, coffee and delicious cakes to help raise money for a great cause which is close to many people’s hearts.

“We ask that you come along and lend your support, spend some time having a ‘natter and a nibble’ with us, every penny we raise will go to this great cause.”
