The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. We ask people across the UK – and sometimes further afield – to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made. In 2012 115,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £15 million.
This year we want to raise even more money to help change the lives of people affected by cancer. Find out about how Macmillan helps|.
How did it start?
The event started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle – as they might ordinarily do – but donate the cost of their coffee in the process.
The idea seemed such a simple, yet effective one that they suggested the model be taken up nationally. The first National World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was in 1991, when 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £75 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.
We hope you’ll get together with friends, family and colleagues on Friday 27 September and make time for what really matters.
How do I get involved?
To get involved all you need to do is sign up| and we’ll send you a lovely Coffee Morning kit, full of everything you need for a successful coffee morning.
It makes inviting your friends and raising the money really easy, so you’ll find organising your coffee morning as simple as can be.
Holding a Coffee Morning is great fun – inviting friends and family round for a cuppa, cake and chat. The sense of achievement once it is over and you have a count up to see what you have raised for Macmillan is amazing.
