Add some sparkle to your Coffee Morning with M&S

Since 2010, Marks & Spencer has raised more than £6 million for Macmillan. And with them being our headline sponsor for World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, this year is set to be our most successful year together yet.

Throughout September, Marks & Spencer will be selling an even bigger range of products in aid of Macmillan and staff will be organising plenty of fundraising activities. This includes:

  • A mouth-watering range of M&S Foodhall products – including delicious cakes, cake mixes and biscuits, each with a 10% donation to Macmillan.
  • A 5p donation to Macmillan for every coffee or slice of cake bought in an M&S Café.
  • A selection of homeware – from a mug to an apron. All are available to buy in-store or from the M&S website.
  • A beautiful range of items designed in collaboration with Tatty Devine, a renowned jewellery designer. Choose from a pin badge, keyring, earrings and reusable bags, exclusive to M&S.
  • And of course staff will be pulling out all the stops when it comes to fundraising in stores.

Pick up Coffee Morning products in Marks & Spencer this September to help make your own event extra special and know that you’ll be supporting Macmillan at the same time. Let’s change lives with every slice.
