Macmillan Coffee Morning

A Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee Morning will take place at Praters in Nunney on Friday 27 September.

World's Biggest Coffee MorningNoel Mendelssohn will host a morning of coffee and cakes with a raffle and sale of second-hand books.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event. People across the UK hold a coffee morning, where donations on the day are made to Macmillan. In 2012 115,000 people signed up, raising a record £15 million.

There are currently 2 million people living with cancer in the UK. By 2030 there will be 4 million. 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.

The Macmillan Coffee Mornings raise money to make sure everyone has a Macmillan team in their corner, from diagnosis, through treatment, and afterwards. That way, no one will have to face cancer alone.

Macmillan Coffee MorningThe 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.

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support takes place on Friday 27 September 10am to 12 noon at Praters, opposite Nunney Church. Everyone is welcome to come along, enjoy coffee and cakes and support the vital work Macmillan does for cancer patients.
