This event coincides with ‘The Worlds’ Biggest Coffee Morning’ – MacMillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event. People from all over the UK and beyond will be holding coffee mornings, and donations on the day will be forwarded to MacMillan.

M&S Café are the charity’s new official partner, and have been running special promotions since early August to raise funds for MacMillan. On 24th September M&S Café will donate 50p for every coffee sold.

Last year’s coffee morning helped raise an amazing £7.9 million for people living with cancer.
