Brave the shave

Thousands of men and women across the country brave the clippers for Macmillan every August. Some part with their locks to give something back, others in support or memory of a loved one. Some do it as a team, others as a family. However they do it, their efforts raise vital funds to help improve the lives of people affected by cancer.

World's Biggest Coffee Morning

The ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ is Macmillan’s flagship fundraising event, which takes place each year towards the end of September. The idea is simple - all you need to do is get together with family, friends or colleagues over coffee and cake. All money raised will enable Macmillan to continue providing emotional, financial, medical and practical support to people affected by cancer.
