Wherever you work - in a hairdressers, garage, doctor's surgery, or in an office, you can host a Coffee Morning.

Get your colleagues back together for some much-needed time-out and team bonding. A Coffee Morning can also be a great way to meet and celebrate your customers, and even bring in some new ones! Fun, games, and food are guaranteed to be a big hit with everyone.

Why host a Coffee Morning for Macmillan?

Boosts team morale

Maybe you haven't socialised as a team for a while. Coffee Morning is a chance to come back together with colleagues and increase workplace well-being.

Fantastic food and drink

Coffee Morning is the perfect excuse to get baking or buy some shop-bought snacks. Need some inspiration? Check out our recipes – we’ve got everything from breakfast muffins to baklava.

That feel-good feeling

Raising money for a good cause makes everyone feel good. Taking time to get to know your colleagues can also be a great way to build stronger working relationships, and maybe even discover shared interests.

Whatever your reason for hosting a Coffee Morning at work, it’s a great one and every penny raised will help support people living with cancer.

Entertain and engage

To make a day of it and help raise even more money, get the whole team involved in some games and activities. You could do a bake off, raffle or a quiz. We have plenty of fundraising games to keep your colleagues entertained.
