Will your church hold a coffee morning for MacMillan?
The annual MacMillan World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is set to run on Friday 28th September and it is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
They ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone they raised over £27 million and together with YOUR help - they aim to make this another successful year.
The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, they did it again the next year – only this time nationally.
Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
So shy not encourage your church or organisation to sign up to host a coffee morning - or alternatively pop along to Dogsthorpe Fire Station between 10.30am - 12.30am and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of cake - all in a good cause.
