‘CEREAL’ fund-raisers are urging people to follow their lead and take part in Britain’s Biggest Breakfast for Cancer Research UK.

The charity’s fund-raising manager Annie Mitchell invited colleagues to join her for breakfast in bed, complete with pyjamas and night hats.

And now she is calling on others to host their own fund-raising breakfast during March.

She said: “With 83 people in the West Midlands diagnosed each day, many members of our team have family or friends who’ve been personally affected by cancer so we really wanted to inspire people to host their own breakfast event and help more people survive.

“Hosting a breakfast event is a really fun and simple way to raise much-needed funds to beat cancer sooner. Friends, family, neighbours and colleagues can all bring something to the table – from porridge to poached eggs, anything goes.

“Whether you’re serving up a breakfast spread for five or 50 people, every pound donated will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
