FORMER Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg MP attended a Macmillan coffee morning hosted by Sheffield care home The Laurels and The Limes.
The MP for Sheffield Hallam met residents – including the home’s oldest, 103-year-old Hilda Broomhead – as well as relatives, staff and visitors.
One of thousands of coffee mornings being hosted across the UK for the cancer support charity, the Hill Care home on Manchester Road raised over £100 in donations.
The money will go towards medical, emotional, practical and financial support for those with cancer.
Nick Clegg MP said: “Macmillan cancer research is a very worthy cause and I was delighted to be invited to support The Laurels and The Limes’ coffee morning. It was lovely to meet the residents, their relatives and the staff – who are doing such a great job.”
Wendy Waddicor, managing director at the Hill Care Group, which operates The Laurels and The Limes, said: “It was a pleasure to have Nick Clegg MP at our coffee morning and we were so pleased for the support.
“I’d like to thank everyone who came along and helped make the event a huge success. We run coffee mornings and other fund raising events across the Hill Care group, as they not only help raise valuable funds for great causes, but are a boost for our residents who enjoy meeting visitors and taking part in the activities.”
