Raising cash for cancer from coffee

A grandfather from Hampshire, who was told he had inoperable cancer, is determined to prove medics wrong. Brian Wheeler had a tumour the size of a football on his kidney but he is now beating the disease.

His daughter is organising the biggest coffee morning the village of Hamble in Hampshire has ever seen to raise money for Macmillan nurses who provide vital support to cancer sufferers.

She is hoping to attract hundreds to Hamble Memorial Hall tomorrow morning at 10am with cake, coffee, prizes and childrens' entertainment.
