Smell the Coffee!

Sian Harris, the local Fundraising Manager for Macmillan said “This year is the 21st anniversary of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and so we want to make it the biggest ever. It is such a fun event to host and there will be hundreds of them going on across Devon & Cornwall.”
We in the two counties have organised some of the record breaking Macmillan World’s Biggest Coffee Mornings, including the lowest coffee morning, that was held at Poldark Mine, and the highest coffee morning hosted by an individual from Devon at Everest Base Camp!
You can hold a coffee morning at home, work, school or as part of another event.
It doesn’t have to be about coffee, you can do whatever suits you. It can be a fancy dress party or a quiz or something completely different.
Sian went on to say “Over 10,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in Devon & Cornwall every year and so we are all affected by cancer in some way. Macmillan not only provides cancer care specialist nurses in the community, but also a raft of information and support, from counselling to welfare and benefits advice, financial grants to campaigning for better cancer care.
We can only continue to do this work with support from local people and so hosting a coffee morning is an easy way to really make a difference in your local community.”
