What’s the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning about?

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest charity fundraising event. They ask people across the UK – and sometimes further afield – to hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2013 154,000 people signed up to coffee morning, raising a record £20 million for charity.

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 to Macmillan 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 £113 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.

We thoroughly enjoyed our part in Macmillan  ‘The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning’ held on Friday 27th September in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and the great work undertaken by them. Our staff and their families took to their kitchens and produced a magnificent array of old fashioned home baking. The tasty treats were soon devoured, raising £142.60 in cake sales, which was kindly doubled by our directors.

All cakes/savouries now sold the directors matched funds from sales of cakes and we have raised a magnificent

£285.20

      A very big thank you to all those who brought in baked goods & a very big thank you to all those who bought them.

                 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. bgblockquoteend
