The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28 September is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People all over the UK are asked to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone over £27 million was raised.
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, it was repeated again the following year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Hosting your own Coffee Morning is easy. All you have to do is sign up and Macmillan will get your kit to you.
