Larry Lamb and Alison Steadman have reprised their infamous Gavin and Stacey characters of ‘Pam-la and Mick’ to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. The much loved duo came together to raise their mugs to the fundraiser which takes place on Friday 25th September.
Larry and Alison are long term supporters of Macmillan and can be seen kicking off the celebrations by preparing for their own coffee morning using some gorgeous limited edition mugs, tea towels and pinnies that are all available now at M&S stores nationwide. The items are part of a range of exclusive home, Café and food products available throughout September in M&S stores across the UK to celebrate the 25th anniversary of World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, all with 10 percent of each sale going to Macmillan.
M&S is the headline partner of The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has raised over £138million for people affected by cancer since its launch in 1991. The idea remains as simple the first official World’s Biggest Coffee Morning took place: get together with friends, colleagues or neighbours to hold a coffee morning and raise money for Macmillan.
With 2.5 million people currently living with cancer, this year Macmillan needs more people than ever to get involved. Every cup of coffee bought, cake baked and laugh shared at a coffee morning helps Macmillan to continue to providing vital services and support to ensure no one faces cancer alone.
