The idea is simple; people across the country host their own coffee mornings, enjoy tea or coffee and a slice of cake with friends, and all proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support. Once you’ve signed up on the website, a fundraising kit will be sent to you, including recipes, a collection box, event posters and a game for your event. Now that restrictions have been lifted, events can be face to face (with social distancing), but those who are uncomfortable with this can still hold virtual events.
The official date of the coffee morning is Friday 24th September, but it can be held any time that suits you. If you don’t want to host a coffee morning yourself, you can visit the website and search for events near you, as some places hold public coffee mornings.
