Coffee, cake and charity.

Catching up with friends over coffee and cake is one of life’s real pleasures. So imagine how good it feels to indulge yourself in this way and do your bit for charity at the same time?

On Friday 27 September, people across Oxford will be getting together to have a coffee morning for Macmillan Cancer Support. It’s a great opportunity to say ‘come for coffee’ to everyone you know – friends, family, the new neighbour. Anyone you've been meaning to catch up with, or would like to know better. A coffee morning for Macmillan is the perfect chance to get them all together.

Whether it’s a coffee morning at the office, an afternoon tea party with the girls or a great British bake off – the options are endless. All you need to do is get everyone together and ask them to donate money for coffee and cake.

If baking doesn't appeal, you can always dress up a store-bought sponge with some whipped cream and berries or just fill pretty plates with good biscuits. Whichever kind of coffee morning you hold, you’ll love our new, free Coffee Morning Kit which is full of goodies to help you raise money. Cake flags for pricing your treats. A rather elegant table-covering to make everything look beautifully tempting. And a poster or pad of invitations to make it really easy to say ‘Come for Coffee. It’s for Macmillan.’

With the number of people affected by cancer set to rise to 4 million by 2030, Macmillan needs more people than ever before to sign up and get involved.

So whatever you choose to do – an indulgent bake-off or simply coffee and digestives – you and your guests will be supporting someone through one of the toughest times in their life. And it all starts with ordering your free Coffee Morning kit at
