Macmillan are hosting their annual world’s biggest coffee morning on 30th September, so make sure your oven is set!
In 2015 Macmillan raised a staggering £25 million as part of their fundraising event for people facing cancer. Since starting in 1990, the coffee morning has boomed into a baking bonanza with people hosting events on small and large scales across the UK.
As part of the campaign to support the 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK, Macmillan’s goal is to be there for suffers and their families providing medical, emotional, practical and financial support.
"I live on my own, so after diagnosis I had to cope, I had to arrange everything. I had to arrange my hospital appointments. I had to arrange to have a taxi take me. There are times when you’re sitting there and thinking, I wish somebody would make me a drink. But if you want one you’ve got to go and make it yourself. Without Macmillan it would have been quite lonely." Cath, cancer patient supported by Macmillan.
