WIGANERS who love a good cup of coffee are being asked to raise their mugs to help a cancer charity raise millions of pounds.

Macmillan Cancer Support is holding the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on September 28, and hopes people from Wigan will join caffeine connoisseurs from across the country to organise events.

The event, which raised more than £10m in 2011, sees coffee mornings arranged in community centres, schools and homes across the country, with the proceeds going to the charity’s work supporting cancer patients.
