MACMILLAN Cancer Support’s iconic Coffee Morning event is back this September, bigger than ever, with those attending set to raise millions to ensure Macmillan can continue to support the growing number of people living with cancer.
Unfortunately, the reality is one in two of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our lifetime.
However, the smallest gesture really can make the biggest difference to those affected, and every year Macmillan supporters up and down the country help raise millions of pounds just by taking part in Coffee Morning.
The money raised goes towards funding Macmillan – who rely almost entirely on donations – and their services across the country. This means absolutely every penny raised at a Coffee Morning is cherished and appreciated and really helps us be able to provide vital support to people with cancer.Every Coffee Morning, no matter how big or small, will help Macmillan support people affected by a cancer diagnosis
For example, just £17 could help a member of our Cancer Information and Support team on our Macmillan Support Line deal with a call or web enquiry.
£350 could pay for a Macmillan Grant, a one-off payment that helps with the extra costs that living with cancer can bring.
They can be used to buy specialist equipment or to meet other unmet needs, including paying for hospital travel, extra clothing or to help cover the cost of a much-needed break.
Sarah Page, Macmillan’s Area Fundraising Manager for Cheshire, says: “The countdown to Coffee Morning is officially on, and it’s always so fantastic to see so many people get involved as every penny makes a huge difference to those affected by cancer.
“Every single Coffee Morning hosted or attended enables Macmillan to support more and more people living with cancer and their families.”
This year’s Macmillan Coffee Morning will ‘officially’ take place on Friday 24 September, but please do just get involved whenever and wherever you can.
Raising a mug and a few quid for Macmillan really can improve someone’s life.
