Brew up for Macmil­lan

MACMIL­LAN Can­cer Sup­port’s flag­ship fundraiser, World’s Big­gest Cof­fee Morn­ing, takes place on Fri­day, Septem­ber 29, and ev­ery slice of cake eaten and cup of cof­fee poured in the North West has the power to help change lives for peo­ple liv­ing with can­cer.

The char­ity is ask­ing ev­ery­one to take part, ei­ther by host­ing a cof­fee morn­ing or by at­tend­ing one.

Last year, 11,719 cof­fee morn­ings were held across the North West re­gion, rais­ing £2,947,046 for the char­ity that pro­vides es­sen­tial sup­port for peo­ple af­fected by can­cer.

2017 is the 27th year of the event and with the help of fundrais­ers in the North West, Macmil­lan hopes to beat the £29.5m raised last year across the UK.

This is the year that the to­tal raised by Cof­fee Morn­ing since it be­gan will pass the £200 mil­lion mark, so we re­ally do need ev­ery­one’s help.
