Madrugada Coffee MorningMadrugada hopes that as many of you as possible will come along to our 9th anniversary coffee morning from 10:30 till 13:00 on Saturday 24 February at our Support Centre in Rua Direita 100a in Luz.

In the past Madrugada’s coffee mornings have coincided with Macmillan’s “World Biggest Coffee Morning” but we found this led to some confusion. Many believed that some of the funds raised for Macmillan’s wonderful work in the UK was passed by them to Madrugada to help with our work here. But this was not so and nor would we have expected them to do so. So we felt it would be much more appropriate for us to hold our own anniversary coffee morning to raise funds solely for Madrugada.
