Make time for what matters in life by joining the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday, September 27 and help raise more than £15m for Macmillan Cancer Support.
There couldn’t be an easier way to make a difference, simply gather together family, friends or colleagues, put the kettle on and tuck into some tasty treats.
In 2012 the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning smashed its fundraising target and raised a record-breaking £15million, which helped fund the Macmillan therapists, nurses and support line workers who make sure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner, every step of the way.
“So this year Macmillan need more people than ever to make some time for what matters in life,” said a spokesperson.
“Whether it’s a coffee morning at work, an afternoon tea party with the girls or a great British bake off - every donation will help Macmillan’s ambition to provide support to everyone affected by cancer.
“At over 20 years old, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s flagship fundraiser. Over the years, supporters have hosted many record breaking events from the heights of a jet engine to the depths of a tin mine,” they added.
