The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
McMillan ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone they raised £29.5 million and this year they are aiming to raise even more.
All 6 Laurie Ross branches took part in the event on 29th September 2017 raising money through selling home baking and tea or coffee to our branch customers.
There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and McMillan want to be there for them all.
One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Their goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone.
They provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, they are there for friends and family too.
