The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event.
People all over the UK host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. We are counting up the pennies and pounds for this year’s event as we speak, and hope to raise over £27 million again this year, to help everyone living with cancer to live life as fully as they can.
How did it all begin?
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, we did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Why we do it
Having a Coffee Morning is the perfect chance to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of something delicious for a great cause.
One in two of us will face cancer, and the money you raise at your Coffee Morning will help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.
