The event started in 1990, when a local fundraising committee decided to hold a coffee morning where people came along to meet and mingle – as they might ordinarily do – but donate the cost of their coffee to Macmillan in the process.
The idea seemed such a simple, yet effective one that they suggested the model be taken up nationally. The first National World’s Biggest Coffee Morning was in 1991, when 2,600 people registered to hold coffee mornings across the country. Since then it has raised over £75 million in total for Macmillan Cancer Support.
There are currently 2 million people living with cancer in the UK. By 2030 there will be 4 million. Macmillan Cancer Support wants to make sure it’s there for all of them.
One in three of us will get cancer and for most it will be the toughest thing we ever face. When you’re facing the toughest fight of your life, you need a team of inspiring people in your corner with you.
That’s who Macmillan Cancer Support is. They provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support and they push for a better cancer care system. They’re the team that gives you the strength and energy to face the fight and get through it.
Get involved by visiting Mode Hotel at 27th of September. We will be waiting for you from 10am – 1pm.
