Every year Macmillan Cancer Support organises an event called Coffee Morning – their most important fundraising initiative for people facing cancer. As usual, we join hundreds of others all over the UK, hosting their own Coffee Mornings and donating on the day to Macmillan. The money raised during the event are spent on providing medical, emotional, practical and financial support to those facing cancer, as well as campaigning for better cancer care.
This year we organised the Coffee Morning at the office, but with all the staff bringing their sweets we decided to spread it throughout the whole week and enjoy these delicious treats and coffee on each morning last week! This way we increased the donations and made sure that none of the yummy supplies went to waste!
Macmillan has been organising Coffee Mornings since 1990 and over the last 26 years they managed to raise over £165.5 million to support people facing cancer and their families. At HTC we love to get involved in worthy initiatives like this, especially if they can be combined with eating something tasty! Hosting a Coffee Morning is really easy and it’s also a great fun, so we encourage everyone to give it a go next year!
