Every cake and cuppa helps make a huge difference to people facing cancer.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. Macmillan ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone £29.5 million was raised and this year they are aiming to raise even more.
The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan. Money raised will help fund Macmillan nurses, help provide information about cancer, help with financial support (like grants and advice) and even help answer calls on the Macmillian Support Line.
Hosting your own Coffee Morning is easy. All you have to do is sign up. They will get your kit to you in 7 - 8 working days. In the meantime they have plenty of posters and games for you to download on their top tips page ready to host your event..
We are hosting our very own Coffee Morning at our Head office in Nuneaton. Doors open at 9am and raffle will be drawn at 12pm. So why not come along and bring a smile!! "Lets change lives with every slice!"
