‘Cake tastes better...with M&S’
The fantastic partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support and M&S has already raised over £4million since 2010. Thanks to the boundless enthusiasm, support and hard work of M&S employees and customers, we are able to fund vital specialist Macmillan services in local communities right across the UK.
We are proud to have M&S as the headline sponsor for our flagship fundraising event, World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and we know that 2015 will be the best yet as we work together to pull out all the stops. This September M&S customers will be able to indulge in coffee and cake in M&S cafes, pick up selected M&S foodie goodies or even purchase some of the lovely limited edition homeware on offer in stores across the UK and know that they are making a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.
But this is a partnership built on much more than coffee and cake and the last five years have seen M&S embed Macmillan into their business, by supporting the charity’s Work and Cancer programme, and hundreds of M&S staff pledging to support Macmillan through fundraising and volunteering. Last year, thanks to that invaluable support, Macmillan specialist healthcare professionals, from nurses to dieticians and psychologists to doctors, were funded in communities around the UK.
With over two million people living with cancer in the UK today, the demand for Macmillan professionals has never been higher. That figure is set to rise to 4 million in 2030. We want to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone, that is why the continued support of partners like M&S is so vital.
