COMMUNICATIONS NEWS: Charity cuppa

TV star Martin Clunes is helping to publicise an attempt by Macmillan Cancer Relief to organise the world's biggest coffee morning on 26 September. The event, aiming to raise around £3.5m, will try to surpass last year's event, which entered the Guinness Book of Records when 1.5 million people attended 26,000 coffee mornings. GWR, owners of Classic FM, have agreed to support the coffee morning event, now in its 13th year. Participants are encouraged to arrange their own coffee mornings or take part in thousands happening around the country. Information packs with advice on planning, games and recipes are available from Classic FM's website. Jenny Edwards, head of events at Macmillan, believes the success of the campaign lies in its simplicity. "Anyone can get involved: if you can make a cup of coffee you can help people with cancer."
