It’s time to dust off those coffee mugs and dig out your ‘showstopper’ recipe, as Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraiser World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, returns on Friday 25th September and Sainsbury’s New Romney will be holding a coffee morning in their colleague restaurant between 11.00am and 1.00pm where all customers and friends are invited to enjoy a cuppa and cake with them. This year Macmillan is hoping that more people than ever will take part and help to celebrate its 25th Anniversary by raising over £25million for people affected by cancer.sainsburys
The idea remains as simple today as it was in 1991 when the first official World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place: get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours to hold a coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan. After all, cake really does taste better together.
A local fundraising committee came up with the idea after it held a coffee morning and donated the proceeds to Macmillan. They suggested rolling out the idea nationally and the first official event saw 2,600 people across the UK host a coffee morning. Last year Macmillan estimates that over 5 million people were involved and a staggering total of £138million has been raised since 1991.
With 2.5 million people currently living with cancer, this year Macmillan needs more people than ever to get involved. Every cup of coffee bought, cake baked and laugh shared at a coffee morning helps Macmillan to continue to providing vital services and support to ensure no one faces cancer alone.
