Coffee Morning Success for People Living with Cancer in London
On Monday 1st October Horizon Teachers came together to host a Macmillan Coffee Morning in Monument to help raise vital money for people living with cancer.
Bringing millions of people together for coffee and cake each September/October, Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has become a British institution over the years – with thousands of events happening up and down the country including in Monument and the surrounding areas.
Speaking after the event, Louise Thomson said:
“We really enjoy doing our bit for this year’s Coffee Morning. It was amazing to get people together, have a nibble and a chat and raise money for Macmillan to help people living with cancer at the same time. I want to thank everyone who came, helped, baked, and donated to make it a success.”
“We decided to put on a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan due to the close nature of the charity and to continue to support the amazing work they do for patients and families”.
About Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising event
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. We ask people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone Macmillan raised over £27 million and together we can make this another successful year.
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 – only this time nationally. Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
