What's the World's Biggest Coffee Morning about?

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. We ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone we raised £29.5 million and this year we are aiming to raise even more.

How did it all begin?

The first ever Coffee Morning happened way back in 1990. It was a rather small affair with a simple idea: guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process. It was so effective, we did it again the next year – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £165.5 million for Macmillan.

Holding a Coffee Morning is great fun - inviting friends and family round for a cuppa, cake and chat. The sense of achievement once it is over and you have a count up to see what you have raised for Macmillan is amazing

Why we do it

Having a Coffee Morning is the perfect chance to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of something delicious for a great cause.

One in three of us will face cancer, and the money you raise at your Coffee Morning will help us make sure no one has to face it alone.
