‘A partnership built on more than just coffee and cake...’
We’ve been working together with M&S for the last five years to fund vital Macmillan services in local communities right across the UK, and 2013 was our most successful year ever, raising a fantastic £1.2million for Macmillan.
This brings the total amount raised together to a cool £2.8 million which will go a long way towards helping ensure that no one affected by cancer has to face the fight alone.
But our partnership is built on much more than just coffee and cake, and has seen M&S embed Macmillan into their business, by supporting our Work and Cancer programme, and hundreds of M&S staff pledging to support Macmillan by fundraising and volunteering. We’re excited to see what our partnership brings in the year ahead and are looking forward to working together to make this World’s Biggest Coffee Morning the best ever.
This year M&S are helping to make World’s Biggest Coffee Morning the biggest ever in a whole host of ways. From selling a range of new and exclusive WBCM products in Cafés and Foodhalls, including vintage inspired cupcake cases, a limited edition Macmillan Victoria sponge cake and gorgeous limited edition pin badges, designed by fashion designer Celia Birtwell. To giving Macmillan 5p from the sale of every cup of coffee and cake sold in M&S Cafés throughout September and all M&S Cafés across the country getting involved and hosting their own coffee mornings – with their help coffee morning really is set to be a supersized success!
