Thanks to Macmillan Cancer Support, coffee, cake and chats are taking the nation by storm. Thousands of people across the UK are organising and attending coffee mornings to support The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is a huge fundraiser for the UK charity, which last year raised a record £15 million, purely in donations on the day from all those enjoying morning coffee with friends. Many participants arrange coffee mornings at work, which is a great way of bringing work colleagues together and raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support. Others raise money by inviting their friends and family to their home.
“Holding a coffee morning is great fun – inviting friends and family round for a cuppa, a piece of cake and a chat is a nice way to raise money. The sense of achievement once it is over and you have a count up to see what you have raised for Macmillan, it really is amazing,” says home coffee morning host, Jo Prebble.

What does Macmillan Cancer Support do?
Macmillan Cancer Support provides vital practical, medical and financial support to help improve the lives of cancer sufferers in the UK. With one in three of us getting cancer, it’s a common challenge to deal with or support loved ones who have been diagnosed.
You can count on Macmillan to source nurses in your local area to help you through your treatment; volunteers to help you with day-to-day challenges of dealing with cancer; online information on local support groups and advisers to help with all your queries, as well as all-important fundraisers to make everything possible.
If you or your family are lucky enough to be off on your travels soon, then make sure you are adequately insured and prepared for travelling with cancer.
