Churches, communities and schools across Mansfield are all coming together today to raise money for Macmillan cancer care..
This year sees the 28th annual coffee morning, which encourages people to come together over cake and coffee, while raising money for vital cancer support services.
Macmillan provide specialist nurses for those affected by cancer, as well as family support, rights advisers and volunteers.
The charity also influence Government policy to improve cancer patients experience, and are entirely funded by donations and grants.
The world’s biggest coffee morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer.
The charity asks people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.
In 2017, over £27 million was raised, setting the bar high for 2018.
The coffee morning started as a simple idea - guests would gather over coffee and donate the cost of their cuppa to Macmillan in the process.
It was so effective,so Macmillan did it again the next year – only this time nationally.
Since then, Coffee Morning has raised over £200 million for Macmillan.
Here is where you can grab a coffee and a cake to fund lifesaving cancer treatments:
