The Falkirk Wheel turned green last night to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
The event is Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraiser and this year the charity hopes to raise more than £25m to help fund its services for people affected by cancer.
These include specialist nurses, a telephone support line and financial advice and help for cancer patients.
Richard Millar, of Scottish Canals, said: “We’re very proud to support Macmillan’s vital work. The Falkirk Wheel looks incredible in any colour but, by going green, the world’s only rotating boat lift is helping to raise awareness of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and hopefully encouraging even more people to get involved.”
Pauline Macmillan, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We are really grateful to The Falkirk Wheel for going green in support of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.
“It’s great that they are helping us to raise awareness so that we can be there to support even more people who are affected by cancer.”
