The Macmillan Coffee Morning is a much-loved annual event where MPs host their constituents for coffee and cake whilst raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Now in its 30th year, the charity fundraiser usually sees millions of pounds donated every year to help support people affected by cancer.
Every 90 seconds someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. The money raised helps fund Macmillan services like the 6,400 famous Macmillan Nurses or their free support line, that makes sure people with cancer can get the physical, emotional and financial support they need.
This year is more important than ever to support Macmillan’s flagship Coffee Morning, one of the UK’s longest-running fundraising events. Due to coronavirus the event is facing a staggering 71% income drop of £20 million, the cost of more than 350 Macmillan specialist cancer nurses in England for a full year. A fundraising fall of this magnitude could risk more than 80,000 cancer patients missing out on support from a Macmillan nurse next year.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this year, our Macmillan Coffee Morning will be held online, on Zoom, at 9:30-10:30 AM on Friday 2nd of October.
I am keen to see as many of you as possible at this wonderful event. You can RSVP to the event and donate here.
Zoom details will be made available closer to the date.
