Macmillan's Coffee Morning kicks off today to fundraise and offer support for people living with cancer. 

People can sign up to host their own coffee morning, whether it's a cuppa over Zoom or a garden party, and donate any money that is fundraised to the charity. 

In 2020, Macmillan raised over £10 million from the Coffee Mornings and £290 million since it first began in 1990.

How can I take part?

All you have to do is register for your coffee morning via the website. 

Macmillan will send you a free fundraising kit, which is available in two options. 

Hosts can choose to have a full kit which comes with bunting, balloons, cake flags, and a tablecloth or an environmentally-friendly kit, which has no plastic and less paper. 

People are encouraged to bake cakes and sweet treats for the coffee mornings to help raise as much money as possible. 

The website includes some recipes and posters that can be printed out to decorate the coffee morning area. 

How can I donate?

People can donate to their coffee morning host using cash, but hosts can also set up a fundraising page or QR code to allow people to donate online too. 

If you can't get to your local coffee morning, you can text CUPPA to 70550 to donate £5 directly to the charity.
