Make time for what matters in life by joining the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28 September and help raise more than £10.8m for Macmillan Cancer Support.
There couldn’t be an easier way to make a difference, simply gather together family, friends or colleagues, put the kettle on and tuck into some tasty treats.
In 2011 the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning smashed its fundraising target and raised a record-breaking £10million, which helped fund the Macmillan therapists, nurses and support line workers who make sure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner, every step of the way.
So this year Macmillan need more people than ever to make some time for what matters in life. Whether it’s a coffee morning at work, an afternoon tea party with the girls or a great British bake off - every donation will help Macmillan’s ambition to provide support to everyone affected by cancer.
At 22 years old, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is not only Macmillan’s flagship fundraiser but it’s still the original and best charity coffee morning. Over the years, supporters have hosted many record breaking events from the heights of a jet engine to the depths of a tin mine. But however hosts hold theirs, they can do so in the knowledge that their cup of coffee and slice of cake really will make a huge difference.
Make time for what really matters by holding your own coffee morning. Visit www.macmillan.org.uk/maketime or call 0845 602 1246 or text COFFEE to 88080 to get your Coffee Morning Kit today.
