Make more of your event at school
Teachers, pupils, parents – anyone can organise a Coffee Morning at school. It’s a great way to get the whole school community together for a fun, fuss-free event. And what’s more, the money you raise will help improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
Here are some handy resources to help you create a buzz.
Spread the word...
Pick a time and a place that works for you and start creating a buzz wherever you can.
Create your own posters and tickets for your World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event on our be.Macmillan website.
Pop up our invite poster to let your colleagues know where and when to come. What’s more, it doubles up as a thank you poster too so you can share how much you’ve raised after the event .
Why not use our fun e-invites to invite along your friends and family.
Invite friends, family, colleagues and anyone else you can think of to your event. If they can’t make it, they can still make a donation.
Make more of yours...
Gift Aid turns four hours of Macmillan time into five without costing your guests an extra penny. Request our Gift Aid form or tailor your own online then encourage your guests to fill in their details and tick the Gift Aid box to make their donations worth even more.
