An Immediate Success
The initial success of the first Macmillan Coffee Morning led to a national event a year later. Around 2,600 people registered to hold a coffee morning in the UK in 1991, and, in the 24 years since, more than £138 million has been raised for the charity through this fundraising method. In 2015 over £25 million was raised at the various Macmillan Coffee Mornings, which was a new record!
How You Can Get Involved
The 2015 Macmillan Coffee Morning is due to take place on September 25th. You can get involved by signing up for a Macmillan Coffee Morning kit on the charity’s website. You will then be given a choice, regarding where you plan to host your coffee morning. If you are holding an event in memory of a loved one, then you are also given the opportunity to give their name.
A Great Opportunity to Socialise While Helping a Great Cause
Macmillan’s Coffee Mornings offer a good opportunity to socialise, enjoy a cup of coffee, and support a good cause all at the same time. As well as coffee, donations can be received for food that’s served at an event, such as slices of cake.
