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, a fantastic charity who help people facing cancer find the best way through the challenges they face.
As usual, with a huge supply of sweet delicacies, we decided to start the celebration a bit earlier in the week, spreading the fun over few days, to increase the donations and make sure that none of the yummy treats went to waste!
Macmillan has been organising Coffee Mornings since 1990 and over the last 26 years they managed to raise over £200 million to support people facing cancer and their families. In 2018 alone this great fundraising initiative raised MacMillan an incredible £26,914,382 and they are aiming to top that this year.
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 great fun, so we encourage everyone to give it a go! Gather your fellow tea drinkers and cake munchers – every penny raised helps MacMillan to be there for people living with cancer.
