Macmillan Cancer Support’s much-loved World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will be returning for its 27th year to homes, workplaces, communities and schools across the country on Friday 29 September 2017.

In Scotland, 6665 coffee mornings raised more than £2.3m in 2016 and this year’s event aims to raise even more money for people affected by cancer.

The first official event took place in 1991. It has since become the biggest fundraising event of its kind, raising more than £194m UK-wide for people affected by cancer over the past 26 years.

This is the year that the total raised by World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will pass the £200m mark and Macmillan is asking everyone to take part, either by getting together with family, friends or colleagues over coffee and cake or finding a coffee morning nearby to get involved in.

M&S will once again be the official partner and throughout September customers will be able to pick up a selection of limited edition homeware products in store, with 10% of each sale going to Macmillan. M&S will also be donating 10% from sales of classic cakes, as well as a vast selection of biscuits, cupcakes and cookie mixes.
