The Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning for Macmillan


Macmillan Coffee morning

*This post is written in partnership with M&S for Macmillan Big Coffe Morning 

I feel really honoured to be partnering up with Marks and Spencer and the Worlds Biggest Coffee morning which aims to raise as much money for Macmillian Cancer Support. I have taken part in these fantastic Coffee mornings for the past few years and it's a great way to have a laugh, eat cake and raise money for this amazing charity.

Unfortunately, cancer is most likely going to affect you or someone you know within your lifetime and charities like Macmillan are invaluable during these times. I've lost my Grandfather, Uncle and Aunt to cancer but it's wasn't until 2017 when I lost my two best friends within the space of 10 months to this awful disease that I realised how important it is to do what we can to make sure charities like this thrive and can carry on offering the services they do.

So how can you get involved? The Worlds Biggest Coffee morning is taking place in the 27th September across the UK and there are a few different ways and no matter how little time you have there is a way to enjoy some delicious treats for a good cause. Firstly you can host your own event, small or large, at home with friends, in the wider community or at work. When you sign up online you also get a free coffee morning kit including bunting, cake decorations and stickers.

If your too busy to organise your own, Marks and Spencer stores across the UK are hosting Coffee mornings on Friday 27th September which donations being made to the charity with all coffee and cake sales in their cafe.

Another option is to pick up some of the specially made delicious Macmillan cakes and goodies from M&S stores and have a little get together at home, which is what we have done this past week. I picked up my eldest on Friday and we headed over to his grandmother's house where we enjoyed some mini victoria sponge, scones and cream and a chat over some coffee (and cocoa for the kids). 10% of all Macmillan products from M&S are donated and it's a nice easy way to get involved although I am still going to be popping into M&S on the 27th as it's always a great atmosphere.

So why get involved? We did you know that it costs over £1000 to provide a Macmillan nurse for a week to provide essential medical, practical and emotional support to those living with cancer and their families. So every pound matters and I know times are tight for a lot of people but we do often treat ourselves to a coffee when we are out and about so why not get that extra feel-good factor from knowing your coffee is going towards raising money for a good cause.

  2. So sorry you have lost so many to this cruel disease. :-( My friend is running one of these morning at her local GP surgery. Nice to get people together as well as raise money.

  5. Lovely to see you supporting such a great cause, and same to M&S! I would usually organise something for work but unfortunately now work in a different city from home - but I have suggested they do something so fingers crossed. Thanks for the great post!
