Come along to our coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. There will be tea, coffee and home-made cakes. Join us for a lovely morning and help us to raise some cash to fight cancer. From the Macmillan site:
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest charity fundraising event. We 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.
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.
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 hope you’ll get together with friends, family and colleagues on Friday 26 September and make time for what really matters.
See you on the 26th!
