What isWorld's BiggestCoffee Morning?

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event

People all over the UK host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. The official date for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Friday 24 September, but you can hold yours whenever and however you like – even if you’re not in the same room as your guests.

In 2020, we raised over £10 million and are aiming to top that this year.

How you can get involved

All you have to do is sign up to host a Coffee Morning and you’ll receive a free Coffee Morning Fundraising Kit to get you started.

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. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £285 million for Macmillan.

Get your Coffee Morning Kit

When you sign up to host a Coffee Morning, you'll get a free fundraising kit full of goodies to help you organise your event. In the kit, you’ll receive bunting, cake decorations, recipes, stickers, a collection box and loads more to make hosting your event a piece of cake.

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 two of us will face cancer, and the money you raise at your Coffee Morning will help everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.
