Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning with Colten Care homes

Charity Events
Date: Friday, 27 September

The World's Biggest Coffee Morning

in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone the charity raised £27 million and this year they are aiming to raise even more. 

There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and Macmillan want to be there for them all. One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Macmillan's goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. They provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, they're there for friends and family too.

Find the golden cupcake!

Colten Care's New Fores homes will be hosting Coffee Mornings/Tea Afternoons in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday 27th September 2019. All are very welcome to come along and enjoy tea, coffee and homemade cakes. There will also be cakes on sale in aid of Macmillan. At each of the Colten Care homes listed below there will be hidden a golden cupcake: make a donation to Macmillan and pick a cupcake, if you are lucky enough to find the winning one you will win a bottle of bubbly!! All winners will then be put into a prize draw to win £250 of 'Love2Shop' vouchers for themselves, with Colten Care matching with a £250  donation to Macmillan.
